Construction is underway in Brecksville, Ohio, on a new, bigger building for Applied Medical Technology Inc., which uses the trade name AMT, just five years after the medical device maker completed its current home in Brecksville.

Jeff Elliott, AMT's chief financial officer, said the company needs more production capacity to continue its sales growth. Elliott declined to disclose sales figures. However, he said the 185-employee company has 30 job openings, with its strongest need for engineers, machine operators and production personnel.

"We're not constrained right now, but we're close to it," Elliott said.

The new, 90,000-square-foot structure will be almost triple the size of the 31,000-square-foot office, manufacturing and warehouse building that it constructed in 2008.

AMT is owned by Dr. George Picha, a plastic surgeon and biomedical engineer. Its products include the "Bridle," which holds nasal tubes in place for patients, and gastrostomy feeding devices.

The company sells to health care institutions and medical distributors, both in the United States and internationally, Elliott said.

"Everything is completed in house," he said, from "design, engineering and manufacturing to sales." The company has a network of domestic sales representatives around the country.

Although Elliott declined to say how much the company's sales are growing, he described its rate of growth in one word: "substantial."
