Xtant Medical to Shutter Dayton Facility, 55 Employees Affected
Xtant Medical Announces Consolidation of Fixation Operations to Montana and Closure of Dayton Facility
- Expected approximate $2 million savings when implemented
BELGRADE, Mont., Oct. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American:XTNT), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today announced the closure of its Dayton, Ohio facility and the transitioning of its fixation operations to the Company’s headquarters in Belgrade, Montana. This decision will allow the Company to align operations with the current and future needs of its customers, and recognize cost-savings by consolidating facilities and reducing duplicative resources.
"In an effort to maximize the benefit of the 2015 merger with X-Spine, and optimize synergies including efficiencies and cost savings, we made the difficult decision of transitioning operations to Montana and closing the Dayton facility," said Carl O’Connell, CEO of the Company. "Hardware will continue to be an important aspect of our business, and is an area we intend to build on in the future. We remain excited about the new technologies in development. With the continued efforts in 2017 towards restructuring and reducing costs, we are looking to strategically invest in both our existing business and new market opportunities, for hardware and biologics in 2018. We will be working to make this transition as smooth as possible for our employees and our customers."
The Dayton, Ohio facility employs approximately 55 employees in various quality assurance, regulatory, inventory management, finance, engineering, and distribution positions. Many of these functions will ultimately transition to our Montana facility. Once the transition is completed, annualized cost savings are anticipated to be in excess of $2 million, resulting from right-sizing the organization and reduction in facilities. The one-time cost for executing this change is estimated to be $1.5 million.
The Company will file the Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification with the State of Ohio and the Department of Job and Family Services.
