Headquartered in Warsaw, Indiana, US, Zimmer develops, manufactures and markets orthopaedic reconstructive implants (including knee, hip and extremities), spinal and trauma devices, biologics, dental implants, and related surgical products, which include surgical supplies and instruments designed to aid in surgical procedures and post-operation rehabilitation.
Zimmer is a leading supplier in the orthopaedics industry, a position which was confirmed through its October 2003 acquisition of Centerpulse AG. Centerpulse provided Zimmer with the leading position in the European reconstructive market and entry into the spine market, one of the fastest-growth segments in orthopaedics. The company’s spinal business has been expanded further with the acquisitions of Endius in April 2007 and Abbot Spine in October 2008.
Another key acquisition – in April 2004 – that has led to strong growth for Zimmer, was that of its alliance partner, Implex, the developer of Hedrocel biomaterial, which Zimmer has marketed as Trabecular Metal Technology since 2000.
More recent acquisitions have expanded Zimmer’s surgical products portfolio. These include Sodem Diffusion SA, the manufacturer of SoPlus Orthopaedic Surgical Power Tools; and Synvasive Technology, producer of Stablecut surgical saw blades and the eLibra Dynamic Knee Balancing System for soft tissue balancing.
Zimmer manages its operations through three geographic segments – the Americas (consisting principally of the US and includes other North, Central and South American markets), Europe (consisting principally of Europe and includes the Middle East and Africa) and Asia Pacific (consisting principally of Japan and Australia and includes other Asian and Pacific markets).
Zimmer has operations in more than 25 countries and sells products in over 100. In 2011, the company generated a net profit of US$760.0 million on sales of US$4,451.8 million. It employs approximately 8,700 people worldwide.
