Zimmer to Establish Asia-Pacific Research and Development Center

WARSAW, Ind., Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZMH), a global leader in musculoskeletal care, announced today at the Chinese Orthopaedic Association (COA) International Congress that the Company will establish a new research and development center in Beijing, China.  The center will lay the foundation for a network of research and development programs across the region.

"The Asia-Pacific region offers significant growth opportunities in both established and emerging markets," said David C. Dvorak, President and CEO of Zimmer.  "Investment in local research and development represents a critical component of Zimmer's long-term strategy to provide clinically-relevant offerings for Asian markets."

Zimmer's Beijing-based research and development will be involved in collaborative efforts with local engineers and healthcare professionals with the goal of developing innovative products and technologies to meet the unique needs of Asian patients and their healthcare providers.  Co-locating the center with Zimmer's existing operations in Beijing further strengthens the Company's position in one of the fastest growing countries in the region.
