Fishers medical manufacturer with 69 employees plans closure

Tridien Medical, a company that had been in expansion mode in recent years, plans to close its Fishers operation center next year, ending the jobs of 69 people.

The company announced the closure in a letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development posted Monday.

Hill-Rom Holdings Inc., which owns Tridien, said it plans to begin eliminating employees Jan. 31 with terminations continuing until Sept. 30, when the facility will permanently close.

Hill-Rom, which moved its headquarters from Batesville to Chicago in 2015, cited “changing business needs,” as the reason for the closure. It acquired Tridien in September 2016 for an undisclosed price.

Tridien, formerly known as Anodyne Medical Device Inc., leases a 60,000-square-foot building at 9901 Kincaid Drive in North by Northeast Business Park.

The company makes products used for the prevention and treatment of pressure wounds suffered by patients with limited or no mobility under brand names including SenTech, PrimaTech, ReactiveAir and Anatomic Concepts.

Tridien was owned by Compass Diversified Holdings, a Westport, Conn.-based investment firm, until it was acquired by Hill-Rom.

The company announced plans in 2011 to add 40 employees over the next two year. The city of Fishers offered the company up to $13,000 per employee in training grants when it announced the expansion.
