Local medical device company expanding

A leading developer of regenerative medicine products is expanding in Lafayette.

ACell Incorporated is headquartered in Maryland, but opened its site in Duncan Park on Sagamore Parkway in 2006.

Initially housed in a 2,500 square-foot facility, the company currently occupies 28,000 square feet. An additional 14,000 square feet of new space will be constructed by late 2014.

ACell president Rodney Bosley says the new facility is needed to help the company continue to grow. It's being paid for by the developer of Duncan Park, INOK Investments.

ACell also expects to add 50 new jobs in Lafayette over the next three years. The company develops and manufactures medical products that repair damaged tissue.
