CLEVELAND – Invacare expects to add 45 new positions at its manufacturing site in Elyria as part of its launch of a new oxygen concentrator. 

The company plans to build a 10,000-square-foot clean room within its Taylor Street facility to enhance its manufacturing capabilities to produce its new Platinum NXG stationary oxygen concentrator to meet the rising demand for respiratory equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, Invacare has had a long and successful history in Elyria,” said Matthew Monaghan, chairman, president and CEO. “We are pleased with the high-quality associates with strong manufacturing experience available in the area, and we look forward to expanding and strengthening our presence for many years to come.” 

Invacare is also evaluating other opportunities that could result in about 100 additional jobs at its Elyria/North Ridgeville campus over the next three years.
