The company, which develops, manufactures, and distributes technically advanced lower limb prosthetics in over 40 countries, has already added 20 of the needed 39 new staff during the first quarter of this year, and continues to recruit additional talent. New hires are being added to virtually all departments, including marketing, sales, R&D, manufacturing, clinical, finance, human resources and administration and at each of the company’s locations, including the Irvine headquarters, the Gunnison, Utah manufacturing and research facility and Freedom’s European office in the Netherlands.

Earlier this year, Freedom expanded its Irvine headquarters with the construction of a new 3,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility where the company’s next generation of microprocessor controlled and powered prosthetic ankles and knees will be manufactured. The first product to be manufactured in this facility is a new ankle system called the Freedom Kinnex™, which is expected to be released in late 2015.

“Freedom has a strong history of achievement and we are excited to announce that we continue to exceed our growth objectives in 2015,” said Maynard Carkhuff, Chairman and CEO of Freedom Innovations. “We’re poised to continue outpacing the market as we develop leading technology platforms and expand our sales and marketing activities both domestically and internationally. It is inspirational to everyone at Freedom to know that we are achieving our mission of enabling people worldwide with physical disabilities to achieve their full potential.”

Freedom Innovations is headquartered in a 41,000 sq. ft. facility in Irvine, California, has a 26,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and distribution facility in Gunnison, Utah and a sales and marketing distribution center in Enschede, The Netherlands.
