Dentsply Raintree to consolidate Fla., Ga. sites

Dental products manufacturer Dentsply Raintree Essix Glenroe is consolidating operations from three facilities into one location in Manatee County, FL.

The company will consolidate operations from two Bradenton, FL, facilities and one in Baldwin, GA, according to a press release from the Manatee Economic Development Corp. (MEDC).

The move is expected to add nearly 50 new jobs in the Florida location this year, according to MEDC. Dentsply expects the consolidation to be complete by August.

Dentsply's operations in Manatee County will encompass more than 20 injection molding machines, high-speed cutting systems, and resin extruders, as well as sales, marketing, and support functions. The new facility will house more than 200 associates to serve orthodontic and dental customers in 38 countries worldwide, according to the company.

The Manatee Board of County Commissioners approved $48,000 in performance-based incentives for the new facility, and the state of Florida committed $288,000 to accelerate the company's hiring and capital investment.
