Medtronic to create 200 jobs in PR

Medtronic plans to add roughly 200 jobs and put $50 million into the expansion of its Juncos operation in Puerto Rico over the next three years. The expansion and jobs come as the device giant's planned new product lines join the operation, Newismybusiness.com reports. "We are proud that a company of Medtronic's caliber is putting its trust in the Puerto Rican market. We will continue to expand our offerings so that other companies take advantage of the benefits of investing in our island, to ensure new employment opportunities," said Governor Luis Fortuño during a news conference.
