joimax's TESSYS Spinal Stenosis System
As part of its ongoing expansion, Germany-based joimax GmbH, a medical-device company that manufactures and markets endoscopic spinal surgery systems, has relocated its U.S. division from Campbell, Calif., to Irvine.

Joimax will now operate out of the Irvine Industrial Complex-East, located near the corner of Anton Parkway and Jeronimo Road. It is not currently known how many staffers will be employed there.

"The new premises provides a perfect operational basis to be able to cover the growing demand for joimax technologies in the U.S.," said company CEO Chip Stevens.

The firm initially expanded to the U.S. in 2005, and as it continued to grow, both here and abroad, additional space was needed.

Joimax’s home office in Karlsruhe has also relocated to a larger facility.

As part of its expansion, joimax is gearing up for its European launch of Shrill, a shaver-and-drill system designed for use on spinal bone and soft tissue during endoscopic surgeries. The introduction of Shrill to the U.S. medical market will soon follow.
