ANDOVER, MA-Smith & Nephew Inc.’s endoscopy division will remain in the state, allaying local concerns that the London-based parent company would relocate this unit out of Massachusetts. The company also plans to develop a new headquarters here on Minuteman Way.

In addition to the 80,000-sf headquarters, Smith & Nephew reportedly intends to expand its facilities here. The building that currently serves as the headquarters will become a 110,000-sf manufacturing facility. In addition, the company’s 60,000-sf manufacturing facility in Mansfield will be expanded by 40,000 sf. The company also has a manufacturing and research and development facility in Oklahoma City. The endoscopy division, which was formerly Dyonics, Inc., is a business unit of Smith & Nephew PLC.
