Durham, N.C.-based medical supplier Primordial Ventures is investing $3.3 million to launch manufacturing operations in Birmingham, Ala. to meet demand from customers in the U.S., Mexico, Chile and Colombia.
"Birmingham's appeal stems from its alignment to our mission and vision," said Nicholas C. Alexander, president and managing director of Primordial Ventures. "We have found [Birmingham] to be accessible, amenable to establishing network affiliations."
The new operations are expected to create 30 new jobs in the region over three years, a Jan. 9 news release said.
The company is committed to hiring minorities, veterans, and disabled people, Alexander said in the release.
"I've found it refreshing that folks here are willing to listen and open to discussions that help me make informed decisions," he added.
The veteran and minority-owned company expects to begin operations in Birmingham in early 2024, the release said.
Primordial Ventures manufactures and distributes catheter kits, urine bags, cadaver bags and medical-grade tubing using high and low density polyethylene and polystyrene resins.
