ReSound, a hearing-technology manufacturer based in Denmark, is preparing for 60 new production workers at its U.S. headquarters in Bloomington, Minn., the Business Journal reports. The company is spending $2.5 million to renovate its Twin Cities facility.

ReSound currently has more than 400 employees in Bloomington -- which has been the firm's U.S. headquarters for more than a decade.

The Star Tribune reported in June that the multimillion dollar renovation is slated to be completed sometime in September.

“The hearing aid industry grows 3 to 4 percent per year and we’ve been consistently growing faster than the industry,” Kim Herman, president of ReSound USA, told the newspaper. ��The devices are smaller and packed with technology.’’
