On Friday, August 31 TechWorld Medicals celebrated their grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony in Milford along with United States Senator Tom Carper, Delaware Economic Development Director Alan Levin, Mayor of Milford Ronnie Rogers, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford, local and state legislators and community members.
TechWorld Medicals is a leader in the advanced technologies of preventing and treating common cold, asthma, allergy and sinusitis. They offer over 19 products including 6 items under the NasalCare Brand name, 7 items under the DrHealing brand name and 5 products under the One-OK brand name. TechWorld Medicals are sold in national convenient stores such as CVS Pharmacy and Rite Aid.
“Thank you everyone. We chose to move to Delaware because we have more space but also because there are so many great leaders to help us grow,” commented President of TechWorld Medicals Dr. Liu. “They have already given us so much help.”
After 18 months of working with the Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) Dr. Jim Liu of TechWorld Medicals decided to relocate his business to the Milford area after his previous facility in Pennsylvania became to small for the increased demand of their NasalCare Nasal Rinse products. Providing key connections and working collaboratively with Sussex County and other local entities, DEDO was able to help TechWorld Medicals make the decision to move to Delaware.
“It is a pleasure to have you come to Milford Dr. Lui,” commented Alan Levin, Director of DEDO. “Melody Booker of DEDO and Julie Wheatley of Sussex County Economic Development, can be credited with bringing Dr. Lui to Delaware. This collaboration demonstrates the great cooperation between DEDO and Sussex County in the name of economic development.”
Dr. Liu recently hired his first local employee with plans to hire approximately 10 full-time employees as they begin ramping up sales with their other healthcare products. Currently, they have a contract with Kent-Sussex Industries (KSI) in Milford to package their product.
“This is a great example of when DEDO doesn’t write a check,” commented Melody Booker, Business Development Leader for DEDO. “but we assisted the client throughout the site selection process, provided key connections and worked collaboratively with Sussex County and others to help a business expedite their decision to move to Delaware.”
