Warsaw-based OrthoPediatrics is in the process of renovating an old car dealership in downtown Warsaw for its new global headquarters. Chief Executive Officer Nick Deeter says the company’s success has never been a product of demand, but the ability to get devices into the market quicker. It once took about 13 years for a life-saving device to be approved by the FDA, but Deeter credits legislation passed the night before the company first met with the FDA for streamlining the process.
The maker of implants for children will combine two facilities into one, and the new location will have space available for future growth. OrthoPediatrics has 11 implant systems approved and not one took over 90 days. In a special edition of Inside Indiana Business Television, OrthoPediatrics CEO Nick Deeter sits down with Gerry Dick to talk about the growth of this specialized orthopedics business.
