Zimmer in Warsaw cuts 50 jobs
WARSAW, Ind. — A spokesperson from Zimmer in Warsaw says the company will cut the jobs of dozens workers.
The director of public relations told ABC57 the change will affect fewer than 50 people.
In a statement to ABC57:
Over the past several years, Zimmer has pursued a number of transformation initiatives that position the Company for sustained growth. These programs have enabled Zimmer to increase the productivity of our new product development programs and better meet the needs of our Customers.
As part of these ongoing efforts, the Company today implemented certain actions that resulted in employee reductions across its businesses and geographic segments. All affected employees will be supported with a range of severance and outplacement benefits.
Less than 50 full time employees were impacted by today’s changes in Warsaw.
In 2012, the company laid off nearly 100 workers.
The Warsaw Chamber of Commerce president says that initial lay off was a wake up call for the community. And it shows the challenges that they need to address.
According to Zimmer's website, the company employs about 8,000 people around the world.
The company is considered a dominant force in orthopedics for over 80 years.
