Columbia, SC — Stomagienics, Inc. (Stomagienics), a company that provides innovative solutions for cancer survivors and others who have undergone ostomy surgery, announced plans to expand operations in Greenville County. The company will create 30 new jobs over the next three years.
Launched in 2018, Stomagienics is committed to delivering products that are easy to use and essential to ostomy care. The founders recognized the opportunity for improved ostomy care following a family member’s surgery. The lack of control over stoma output led to the company’s patented StomaGenie pouch replacement cartridge, which gives ostomy patients control of output and allows for a hygienic and sanitary experience.
Located at 1200 Woodruff Road in Greenville, Stomagienics’ expansion includes facilities and equipment for sales and operations; production of its StomaGenie pouch replacement cartridge; and research and development.
The expansion is expected to be complete by August 2022. Individuals interested in joining the Stomagienics team should email the company.
