$13.3 million



Engineered Medical Systems, a medical device manufacturer, will invest $13.3 million and create 60 new jobs over the next five years to increase manufacturing capacity in Bartlett, Tennessee.


With growing demand and changing technologies in the surgical field, EMS plans to purchase new state-of-the-art Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) equipment, which will add machining capacity with increased capabilities for its existing location in Bartlett. The company recently expanded its facility in Bartlett from 40,000 to 92,000 square feet to accommodate the increased manufacturing demand.

“I applaud EMS for its expansion in Bartlett and welcome the creation of 60 new jobs for Shelby County. This type of investment is crucial as we work to bring Tennessee’s economy back on track and ensure Tennesseans have access to quality job opportunities,” said Governor Bill Lee.

“TNECD is committed to support our local communities and help them attract the private investment and job creation needed to help revive our economy. It is a terrific sign that EMS will move forward with this expansion in Bartlett so quickly after completing its last expansion, and I welcome the creation of 60 new family-wage jobs in West Tennessee,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.

Founded in 2002, Bartlett-based EMS manufactures surgical instruments, implants and specialty medical devices.
