Ingenuity in medicine and medical devices.
Florida is home to the nation’s second-largest medical device manufacturing industry, second-largest pharmaceutical manufacturing industry and is ranked in the top five states for largest biotech R&D. With a strong supplier network and strong workforce pipeline of STEM graduates, it’s no wonder that nearly half of all life sciences companies in the Tampa Bay region are located in Pinellas County. Statewide organizations such as the Pinellas-based Florida Medical Manufacturers’ Consortium (FMMC), as well as educational and governmental partners have a vested interest in expanding this vital sector. Pinellas offers a pro-business environment with job creation tax incentives, low tax rates, a developed infrastructure, a skilled workforce, and strong educational institutions focused on industry needs.
