MARQUETTE — The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning took a tour of RTI Surgical in Marquette Tuesday.

They took a look at R&D functions, prototyping, and manufacturing during their walk through of the facility.

Since last October RTI Surgical has added a third shift, allowing for a 24-hours-a-day operation.

“It really helps us maximize throughput through the facility, and with the greater demand for the product it’s been a big help,” said Eric Baldwin, Vice President of Corporate Accounts for RTI Surgical. “We’ve added about 40 people since last October in this facility.”

The additional shift has made the Marquette facility RTI’s second largest. They will also be adding 20 more positions in the near future.
