ClearCorrect to bring 100 new jobs to Round Rock
City Council approves incentive to help attract clear aligner manufacturer from Houston
Round Rock is pleased to announce that ClearCorrect LLC, a leading manufacturer of clear aligners, will relocate its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility from Houston to Round Rock later this year. ClearCorrect will locate in the Chandler Creek Business Park.
ClearCorrect will create at least 100 new jobs by the end of 2013. The company will also spend a minimum of $1.5 million in tenant improvements and real and personal property in the facility.
“We’ve talked about moving to Central Texas for a long time. We wanted to be in a place that would meet our long-term needs. After an extensive search, we chose Round Rock because it’s in a tech-centric region that aligns closely with our company’s core values,” explained Anthony Penketh, Chief Marketing Officer. “More importantly, we wanted an area with good schools and a family-friendly environment for our employees, and Round Rock fits that description perfectly.”
Round Rock was eager to welcome ClearCorrect, and the City Council approved an incentive agreement on June 13 to assist with the transition. To qualify for a $150,000 incentive, the company must meet specific investment and employment criteria.
“We are thrilled that ClearCorrect has chosen Round Rock as their new home,” Mayor Alan McGraw said. “Not only will it add to the dynamic medical corridor rapidly developing in Northeast Round Rock, but it will also bring quality jobs to the community.”
The Round Rock Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Partnership worked on this business attraction project for more than one year.
”Through the partnership of the Chamber, the City and our Momentum Investors, Round Rock continues to attract world class companies that grow our economy," Chamber Chairman John Garrett said. "ClearCorrect fits perfectly into our advance manufacturing/medical device target industry sector and we are delighted to further grow that cluster.”
ClearCorrect works with more than 13,000 doctors, making it a leading manufacturer of clear aligners. The company offers a more affordable and doctor-friendly approach, including a phase-based system to enhance flexibility and control for doctors.
