SOMERSET, Pa. – Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett recently visited DeVilbiss Healthcare’s corporate headquarters here, commending the company for its efforts to bring jobs back to the U.S. Corbett met with the DeVilbiss management team, toured the manufacturing facility and addressed the company’s more than 200 onsite employees. Bringing China-based product lines back to the Somerset facility has created more than 25 direct assembly, engineering and quality jobs, and several indirect vendor jobs, according to the company. “DeVilbiss Healthcare’s decision to move production back to Somerset is a testament to the company’s visionary leaders and the hardworking men and women that are producing innovative products for people throughout the world,” Corbett stated in a release. “We are building a stronger Pennsylvania where innovative companies like DeVilbiss can grow and compete in the global marketplace.”
