Iconacy President and CEO Tom Allen said $2.63 million was invested in the company, which produces and markets a total hip replacement system and holds an estimated 36 patents, in renovations and equipment to the new facility. Iconacy now occupies nearly 50,000-square-feet of office space and nine acres of land which also houses a warehouse. Currently, Iconacy is a research and development company and employees engineers with more than 100 years of combined experience in the industry.
Iconacy currently has 14 employees and plans to add 50 more jobs in the next four to five years. Iconacy also plans to also invest nearly $2 million in personal property including manufacturing equipment such as CNC mill machines and related tooling, and IT equipment and software in that time period.
