Grand Rapids, Mich., August 31, 2021Shoulder Innovations Inc., (SI), a leading innovator in the development of shoulder replacement systems, announced today the company’s move to a new corporate headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The new building is a cornerstone of the company’s continued growth and will support the ongoing expansion of operations in the U.S., serving as their Headquarters and Distribution Operations Center. With a tripling of their staff in 2021, the new square footage is six times larger than the company’s prior facility based in Holland, Michigan.

The company recently received FDA clearance for their InSet™ Reverse Shoulder system, which seamlessly integrates and rounds out a best in class product line for shoulder arthroplasty, as announced in a recent press release. The InSet™ Reverse Shoulder System significantly expands the company’s product line and is currently in its early release, with its full scale launch in the fall of this year.

Matt Ahearn, Shoulder Innovation’s Chief Operating Officer said, “The move into the new Shoulder Innovations corporate office and distribution facility coincides with the 510k clearance of the InSet™ Reverse Shoulder System; both of which are major milestones and inflection points for the business. This new facility provides the space and systems for the Shoulder Innovations team to efficiently and effectively serve our surgeon and commercial partners, and it has the capacity to support our growth for the next decade.”

Doug Hynek, SI’s Distribution and Customer Service Director said, “The correct strategic location for a distribution facility is critical for serving our commercial team and surgeon customers. Space that allows for optimal operational flow and efficiency is equally important. Our new headquarters achieves both goals. With our new corporate facility and distribution center minutes from downtown and in close proximity to the airport, we are well positioned to service last minute requests from our customers. This location enables us to attract top talent and to have everything necessary to service our national customer base.”
