OrthoWorx Urges Warsaw's Inclusion on High-Speed Rail Corridor Connecting Chicago and Cleveland
Date:12/15/2009

WARSAW, Ind., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoWorx, the newly formed industry, community and education initiative to advance and support the orthopedics device sector in Kosciusko County, is working to connect the orthopedics capital of the world to major cities like Chicago and Cleveland via high-speed rail.

Better and faster transportation of products, customers and employees is critical to the success of the highly concentrated Warsaw-based orthopedics sector, home to dozens of orthopedics device enterprises collectively earning more than $11 billion in annual revenues.
