American medical manufacturing firm, Zimmer Biomet, is to expand its plant in Bridgend, creating nearly 40 new posts and safeguarding 50 other jobs. The firm already employs more than 800 people at its Waterton Industrial Estate premises.

The £2.5m investment is backed by £700,000 finance from Welsh Government and will see a European Centre of Excellence created to specialize in porous coating technologies used in the manufacture of orthopaedic implants.

Zimmer Biomet is a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare and has sites in Bridgend, Warsaw and Indiana (USA). The company has a comprehensive Welsh-based supply chain that will benefit significantly from the expansion.
