Medical Device Company Relocating Manufacturing Facility To Plymouth

A Connecticut medical device company says it's relocating its manufacturing and research and development operations to Plymouth, bringing with it up to 144 new jobs.

Micro Invasive Technologies will start the relocation process in the next few months. Within two years the company says it anticipates it will train as many as 40 skilled, recession-proof jobs. Once fully operational, employment is expected to reach 144.

MITI will occupy the former Tideland Mental Health Center building during its first year of operation, and will then move to the Washington County Commerce Center at the Plymouth Municipal Airport

MITI is FDA-approved to manufacture and sell its DirectView ™ Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic 10mm System which is used for urology and general surgery.

    Fantastic news. Everyone involved with the hard work of bringing in this company to Plymouth should be congratulated on doing a good job for the town of Plymouth and surrounding areas. This is a wonderful start, keep up the search for more of these companies, and soon we will be known as the teck. center of eastern NC. Any way of enticing companies away from the Raleigh area to this beautiful part of NC? Are the community colleges and schools bringing in courses to train in the areas that will be needed. After all, we would like to see employment boosted here, but we need the teck background that will be needed for these jobs. It looks like a win, win situation. Thank you for all of your hard work.

    It's nice to see something good about to happen in my hometown. I, too, remember when Plymouth was alive with activities and community support. Perhaps this will be the start of something good and breathe new life into the town.

    Dear Williamston - because Martin County benefited from the tax revenue from Weyerhaeuser all those years and the only thing Plymouth got was the bad smell. I always have and always will resent people from Williamston and Martin County. GO VIKINGS!!

    I hope this works out and prospers for Plymouth and Washington County. There is no place in the eastern part of the state that needs this any more than here. Again I pray it works out. If, though, it winds up getting "screwed up" due to the politics and grumblings of some of the doings of the county commissioners, which need I say are about as knowledgeable as a mound of dirt,....I would not be shocked. When people start electing people for their expertise instead of their mouthy attitudes and ridiculous promises, lest we forget "party lines", maybe something great will happen here. Its a town that once was bustling with great schools, jobs, happy folks......I'd say there are still happy folks but everything else including the elected leadership are a joke. Just look at who the citizens elect for the school board, and in turn, administration. The things that go on would never have gone on prior to the 90's. To my hometown, I have my fingers crossed this is a sign of good things

    By the time our Zoning and Planning advisor gets through "permitting" the company to death.. They will change their minds and never come to Plymouth. That's what usually happens..
