The new parent of Nypro Inc. has owned the Clinton-based manufacturer only since July 1. But Jabil Circuit Inc. is wasting no time in seeking to highly leverage its latest acquisition.
Nypro announced on September 19 that it is planning a major expansion of its Bay State manufacturing operations because of the rapidly growing demand for its health-care products. The firm is negotiating a lease for a 200,000-square-foot satellite manufacturing plant in the Devens Commerce Center, located about 13 miles north of Nypro’s Clinton plant. Previously, the Devens space was occupied by Evergreen Solar, a maker of solar-power equipment that went out of business in 2011.
