Cadent, Carlstadt maker of computerized dental imaging equipment, to close. Production to be relocated in Costa Rica and Mexico
The owner of Cadent, which provides digital imaging services and equipment for dentists, says it will shut its Carlstadt plant, New Jersey, lay off 119 people and move the work to Costa Rica and Mexico.
The closing is part of a consolidation of work done at the plant as a result of the company's acquisition by San Jose, Calif.-based Align Technology, a company statement said.
The transition will begin in the fourth quarter of this year, and the plant will close in the third quarter of 2012, the statement said.
