It's Official: Mazor Robotics Chooses Orlando for U.S. HQ; New Jobs Coming


11/29/2012 8:15:36 AM

Christmas is coming early. In August, word broke that Tel Aviv, Israel-based Mazor Robotics Ltd. was shopping Orlando as a potential U.S. headquarters. And now it's official: Mazor is coming to Orlando in January with 34 employees earning an average salary north of $80,000 per year; the company manufactures and sells robotic spinal surgery devices. The company will occupy 15,000 square feet of space in the BioResearch Center, formerly known as the bioscience building, a $55 million, five-story, 150,000-square-foot building expecting to break ground in the first quarter of 2013. The building is part of Florida Hospital’s 172-acre development Health Village. The company will also occupy 6,000 to 8,000 square feet of temporary space in downtown Orlando come January, said Christopher Prentice, vice president of global marketing for Mazor. “This will really be a central point for our operations for America,” Prentice said. “We’re very excited about Orlando.” Mazor will join already-announced BioResearch Center tenants Florida Hospital, which will move its thrombosis lab into 12,000 square-feet in the building, and San Diego, Calif.-based Profil Institute for Clinical Research Inc., which plans to bring up to 75 jobs as early as first-quarter 2013 to Health Village.
