Symmetry Medical, Inc. Key Developments

Symmetry Medical Inc. to Close Avilla Facility

Symmetry Medical Inc. announced that the Avilla facility would be one of two United States locations to close in the near future. The Avilla location employs 129 people. A series of layoffs will begin mid-summer, culminating in the closure of the plant at the end of the year. The facility makes orthopedic implants and instruments. The other facility slated for closure is in New Bedford, Massachusetts, which will close in March of 2016. Both facilities struggled to make a profit during the last several years. Work will be transferred to other existing locations. Tecomet announced that it would offer employees jobs at other locations if possible, and those who stayed until the end of the year would receive extra compensation. The company did not say where the production lines from Avilla and New Bedford would be relocated.
