California-based DJO Global has announced plans to close its facility in Plainfield. In a notice to the state, the medical device manufacturer says it will lay off 70 employees beginning in August before the facility closes at the end of October.
DJO Global did not provide a reason for the closure, but says it is expected to be permanent. The company did not respond to a request for comment from Inside INdiana Business.
The majority of the employees affected by the closure are material handlers. The layoffs will take place over several weeks beginning August 6 and ending October 31. The employees are not represented by a union and do not have bumping rights.
The company says it is prepared to work with state and local agencies to assist employees as the closure comes near. DJO Global manufactures and distributes various orthopedic devices as well as surgical reconstructive implant products, according to its website.
