Safeguard Medical, a global leader in developing and distributing life-saving medical products and providing emergency medical support and training to frontline emergency first responders, law enforcement, military, defense and security personnel — including combat medical professionals, is locating its headquarters in Huntersville. The company will occupy the Edgewater Ventures Class-A industrial building currently under construction.
Edgewater is partnering with Alidade Capital to develop a 159,120 square foot industrial building in The Park-Huntersville. The building will take up a 13-acre site and is expected to deliver in late spring or early summer of 2022.
“We are thrilled to have Safeguard Medical come to our community. We look forward to a mutually beneficial and long-term relationship,” said John Aneralla, Mayor of Huntersville. “With Safeguard Medical’s new headquarters, comes new opportunities for Huntersville residents.”
Safeguard Medical will bring roughly 100 new jobs to Huntersville, with the potential for a local workforce of up to 250 people. The new facility will include manufacturing, research and development, as well as administration.
“This is a big win for Huntersville and the Lake Norman Region. Safeguard Medical has been a project we started working on early in the pandemic,” said Ryan McDaniels. “We are excited for the new jobs and investment that will be coming into the community and look forward to this new partnership with Safeguard Medical.”
