Makers of a micro-mobile engine — fueled by local investors and propelled by the Grand Valley’s economic development team — plan to open a new assembly plant in Grand Junction as soon as April, inventors of the innovative medical device said Wednesday.
Manufacturing the engine, which weighs six ounces and fits discreetly in a shoe or sock, is expected to create 68 local, high-paying jobs by 2020 and save 1 million lives around the world by 2025, said Matt Mayer, who developed the device with his father, Dr. David Mayer, a Grand Junction orthopedic surgeon, and Gerhard Rill, founder of a foot support clinic and laboratory in Clifton.
Most of the folks pulling, tugging and guiding the massive balloon characters flying high above New York City during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade are employees of the department store. But one non-Macy’s handler in the crowd this year is a Grand Junction woman who’s realizing a longtime dream. Weather permitting, of course.
