Medical equipment repair firm launches San Jose site for expansion

SAN JOSE — A company that repairs high-tech medical equipment has moved to a San Jose site where it expects to employ several hundred people and accommodate its push into hiring mode.

Olympus has opened a new complex in south San Jose where the company will be able to employ 700 workers and potentially hire even more.

The employees at the south San Jose complex repair “life-saving equipment,” said Jorge Lopes, president of Olympus Surgical Technologies of America. In recent weeks, Olympus held a ribbon-cutting event to formally mark the opening of the new site.

“We hope this event and this expanded facility will make clear how important these service workers are to Olympus, to San Jose, and to the medical community and the patients it serves,” Lopes said.

Olympus executives also believe the complex, which Olympus says is larger than its prior location in the area, will enable employees to have more room to operate — an important consideration in the coronavirus era.

San Jose city officials embraced the new operation and hailed the anticipated expansion prospects for Olympus.

“Olympus has been an important employer in the city of San Jose for more than 40 years, and an early leader in our biotech industry sector,” said Nanci Klein, the city’s director of economic development.

The company said it anticipates plenty of demand for the services and capabilities that it will be able to offer at the new location.

“The new site is indicative of our growing workload and the future growth we expect to see,” Lopes said.
