Dexcom, Inc., a leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for patients with diabetes, will construct a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Mesa for the company’s growing CGM business. This new, 180,000-square-foot facility will support the company’s global manufacturing operations and is projected to create more than 500 jobs over the next several years. The company expects initial manufacturing operations in this facility to commence in the second quarter of 2017.
“We chose Mesa due to the available, talented workforce in addition to the proximity to our headquarters in San Diego and our key suppliers,” says Kevin Sayer, president and CEO of Dexcom. “Given our company’s growth, and the growing demand for CGM technology, we felt that a significant expansion of our manufacturing capability in this location was a good strategic fit.”
