Medical device contract manufacturer SMC Ltd. plans to expand in Massachusetts by consolidating three smaller plants into 210,000 square feet of space in Devens over the next two years, according to Corporate Vice President Brian Payson. “We looked quite a bit in our area. Our first preference was to stay in the community,” Payson said in a telephone interview.
The search led them to Devens, which had a 325,000-square-foot former Gillette building available.
The company worked with the state and leased 210,000 square feet, which they are working to convert. The Economic Assistance Coordinating Council approved a $541,550, 10-year tax incentive financing agreement.
