Irvine-based heart-valve maker Edward Lifesciences on Monday will celebrate the opening of its new manufacturing facility in Draper, Utah, as part of its future growth plans.
The new 300,000-square-foot plant will create up to 1,000 new jobs in the coming years and replaces Edwards' former space in Midvale, Utah.
Edwards, which reported net income of $57.5 million in the second quarter, develops technologies for structural heart disease and critical-care monitoring platforms.
The company plans to produce cardiac surgery systems products and accessories for its transcatheter heart-valve technology at the new facility.
Edwards CEO and Chairman Michael Mussallem will be on hand during Monday's celebration. He will be joined by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Draper Mayor Darrell Smith, among others.
