BioCrossroads, the Indianapolis-based organization that promotes the life sciences industry, has issued a new report that details how Warsaw, Ind. became an orthopedics capital — and how it can stay one.
The overview, out today, suggests a range of broadly supported steps that the industry, the community and the state can pursue to ensure this sector “continues to thrive on Hoosier soil.”
Top players DePuy Orthopaedics (a unit of Johnson & Johnson), Zimmer Holdings, Biomet and Symmetry Medical — all based in the Northern Indiana city — account for $11.8 billion in global sales. Warsaw also has dozens of smaller support companies focused on orthopedics.
