This will see the company add 44,000 sq ft of additional floor space, while $40.2 million will be spent on new equipment at the factory, which produces medical tapes, dressings, surgical drapes and wound care products. 

Joaquin Delgado, executive vice president of 3M Health Care, said the investment is "designed to provide increased manufacturing capacity to support growing demand for our products". 

Work on the project will get underway in April, with the equipment installed periodically and completed by December 2018. In total, around 60 new jobs will be created by 2019.
