Maker of hearing aids to expand its Bloomington workforce


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.
