Sept. 25, 2018 – The Charlotte Chamber is pleased to announce the expansion of Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies. The $3 million investment will create 320 new jobs over three years.
Dentsply Sirona, the Dental Solutions Company™, develops, manufactures and markets comprehensive end-to-end solutions offering many dental and oral health products including general dental supplies and supplies and devices, CAD/CAM restoration systems (CEREC and inLab), digital intra-oral, panoramic and 3D imaging systems, as well as dental specialty products in orthodontics, endodontics, implants and more.
“Dentsply Sirona’s decision to more than double their employee base speaks to all that Charlotte and Mecklenburg County have to offer,” said Bob Morgan, Charlotte Chamber President and CEO. “Our thriving health care sector combined with strategic location provide the perfect platform for Dentsply Sirona to continue to grow here for years to come.”
Dentsply Sirona employs nearly 15,000 employees with locations in more than 40 countries worldwide. Positions created by the expansion will include sales, customer service, clinical education, marketing and executive roles. Salaries will vary by position.
“We are excited to grow in North Carolina with the establishment of a U.S. commercial hub in Charlotte for our sales activities and the ongoing educational programs offered through our Dentsply Sirona Academy,” said Don Casey, chief executive officer of Dentsply Sirona.
“Dentsply Sirona has chosen to invest in North Carolina because their experience here built confidence in our business climate and workforce,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland. “Our workforce knows life science manufacturing and procedures inside and out. Companies in this industry can trust that North Carolina is the right choice.”
