Medical company moves to Vinings from Marietta

Amniox Medical, a developer and marketer of wound care therapies using human placental tissue, is moving its corporate headquarters to Vinings from Marietta.

Founded in 2011, Amniox processes amniotic membrane and umbilical cord tissue donated from healthy live births through Cesarean section. It deep freezes the tissue to preserve it, and applies it to wounds to aid in healing.

The new facility is twice the size of its old location. The company expects to grow from 10 to 30 employees in the next 12 months.

“The adoption of this technology in the orthopedic and wound care sectors has been rapid …,” said Aaron Smith, Amniox general manager.
