Solution Matrix moved everything from western Pennsylvania to the Rocky Mount area — headquarters, manufacturing, the works. Franklin County economic development officials say more than 700 people applied for the first 20 available jobs. The company says it will increase the workforce to 80 or more by 2014.
Solution Matrix is the second medical products company to locate in the Franklin County Commerce Center, and the county hopes this leads still more to follow suit.
