CoorsTek manufactures this part for hip replacements at its Grand Junction plant. As its share of the market grows, which company officials expect in the wake of a recently settled lawsuit, it will likely expand its local workforce.


A federal court has cleared the way for CoorsTek to begin marketing a special pink ceramic device used in hip transplants.
The U.S. District Court for the district of Colorado ruled earlier this month that a German company that makes a similar device had no trademark or trade dress rights over the device.
