Ave Maria to become new Commerical Center

A Naples-based maker of medical devices will move its manufacturing operations to Ave Maria, bringing hundreds of jobs to the new town that’s rising in eastern Collier County.

Arthrex plans to purchase 12 acres in Ave Maria, where it will build a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant. The new plant is expected to open in early 2009.

First Community Bank, with assets of more than $1 billion, is building a new headquarters at Ave Maria and plans to relocate from Immokalee.

Other businesses locating in Ave Maria include Mexican restaurant Cilantro Tamales and Island Bike, which sells and repairs bikes.
