Surgical instrument company moving
By Jim Cornelius

Surgical Instrument Services & Savings (SISS) is moving from the Sisters Industrial Park into larger facilities in Redmond.

The move annoyed the Sisters City Council because the company had requested and received council support for an Oregon Business Development Fund loan of $100,000 -- based on the company's expressed intention to stay in Sisters.

"This was not a process of hoodwinking or betraying anyone," company president Ken Stevenson told The Nugget.

In a letter to city administrator Eileen Stein, Stevenson explained that sudden, rapid growth at SISS and incentives from the City of Redmond made basing facilities in Redmond more attractive.

The company took on a contract for $1 million of a competitor's business after the city offered support for the loan from OBDF.

SISS currently employs 14 people, some of them Sisters residents.

The company plans to add 10 more workers.
