BIOMET 3i and Zimmer Dental are combining operations in Biomet’s original Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. location following the recent merger of the two companies in June that formed Zimmer Biomet Holdings.
“Zimmer Biomet’s Dental Division is the largest dental implant company in the United States,” said General Manager David Josza. “To strengthen our market position, we will continue investing in the best people, who can join us in advancing the field of clinical dental technology.”
Zimmer Biomet will retain 473 positions at the Florida location, and plans to hire more than 150 additional employees over the next three years.
Zimmer Biomet’s portfolio of dental products includes implant and abutment technologies, digital patient-specific solutions, drills, regenerative materials and other ancillary dental components. The Dental Division holds nearly 1,000 professional medical education courses each year, and operates training institutes at locations around the world.
Due to regulatory requirements, products will continue to be sold under Zimmer Dental Inc. and Biomet 3i LLC brands, respectively, until further notice.
