The Economic Development Growth Engine for Memphis and Shelby County board approved a $9 million, 11-year payment-in-lieu-of-taxes incentive for San Diego-based NuVasive to create new jobs in the area, The Commercial Appeal reports.

2. The company will add 15 jobs — in the areas of operations, distribution coordination and quality control inspection — at the regional center.


3. NuVasive will also invest $116 million in the Memphis regional office and distribution center.


4. Of the total investment, $700,000 will go toward facility renovation.
