Bio-tech firm Xoran Technologies has hired 12 people over the last year and is in the process of bringing five more on board right now.
The Ann Arbor-based firm has openings in software development, quality control and customer service. It has hired people who specialize in sales, operations, customer service, quality control and executive team.
"We hired in pretty much every single department," says Rachel Gajda, marketing manager for Xoran Technologies
. She adds that the firm expects to continuing hiring in 2014.
The portable CAT scan company's principal product is MiniCat
, which the company's website describes as "a compact, upright volume computed tomography system designed for high-resolution bone window imaging of the sinuses, temporal bones and skull base." Xoran Technologies has installed hundreds of these scanners around the world, which set the stage for the firm to make 2013 its best growth year since 2008.
The 12-year-old company is gearing up to launch its second product release, xCAT
, a mobile, interoperative CT scanner this winter. The firm's website describes xCAT as "a fully integrated, mobile, cone beam computed tomography system designed to acquire a variety of high resolution, 3-dimensional images. The design of the xCAT allows clinicians the ability to very quickly and easily acquire and access images virtually anywhere."
"It's really going to expand our presence into new markets," Gajda says.
