PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, October 26, 2015 – As part of the recent merger to create Zimmer Biomet Holdings, a global leader in musculoskeletal health, BIOMET 3i and Zimmer Dental are combining operations. Zimmer Biomet will headquarter its dental business in Palm Beach Gardens, at the original BIOMET 3i site. The Company 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 Dental Division is the largest dental implant company in the United States, and we are excited to continue our growth as part of the Palm Beach Gardens community,” said General Manager David Josza. “Our combined operations will allow the company to more effectively serve our customers and administer our global organization. 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 worked closely with leaders from the State of Florida, Palm Beach County and the City of Palm Beach Gardens in selecting the site for the new dental division headquarters. These agencies signaled their support for Zimmer Biomet’s growing participation in the Florida economy, on a shared vision to build the state’s profile as an attractive location for medical innovation and business development.
Zimmer Biomet’s portfolio of dental products includes implant and abutment technologies, digital patient-specific solutions, drills, regenerative materials and other ancillary dental components.
