PITTSBORO, NC – EG-GILERO, a Morrisville-based medical device manufacturer, recently announced plans to invest more than $4 million and create 60 jobs in Chatham County, at what will be its third North Carolina location. EG-GILERO will take over a 40,000-square-foot industrial space in downtown Pittsboro to accommodate production and workspace for employees.
"We are very excited to be expanding our manufacturing footprint and to be calling downtown Pittsboro our new neighborhood," said Ted Mosler, president and chief technology officer of EG-GILERO. "Pittsboro and Chatham County residents and staff have been very welcoming to us and we look forward to being a good neighbor for years to come. For EG-GILERO and our customers, Pittsboro is a hidden gem; but with the expected growth in the area, many others will come to realize the charm and benefits Pittsboro has to offer – as we have."
EG-GILERO, a vertically-integrated contract manufacturer, said it plans to hire engineers, laboratory technicians, operators and other support roles to staff the manufacturing facility. The salaries will vary by position but average $44,317, higher than Chatham County’s average of $36,731.
Founded in 2002, EG-GILERO designs, develops and manufactures products for the medical device and drug delivery device markets.

Social Justice Theater of the Carolinas Presents
Opens April 19, 2019 -- Limited Engagement
One day, you’re going about your life, business as usual. Then, suddenly, something happens that shatters your world and shifts your perspective forever. That’s what occurred 20 years ago in Littleton, Colorado. On April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School ten students and one teacher were killed by two other students who also
subsequently took their own lives.
In their debut production at Sweet Bee Theater in Pittsboro, the Social Justice Theater of the Carolinas (SJTC) will perform the play columbinus, by Stephen Karam and P.J. Paparelli, to commemorate 13 lives lost at Columbine and more than 200 more souls killed in high school shootings in two decades since.
