Medical technology company DJO to relocate global headquarters to Lewisville

DJO, a global provider of medical technologies designed to get and keep people moving, announced Dec. 12 plans to relocate its global headquarters from San Diego, California, to Lewisville by early 2019.

“We made the strategic decision to move our headquarters to Dallas to expand our presence into a market with a strong and larger pool of talent, gain greater and more efficient customer access, and take advantage of what we believe is a better corporate environment for our company as we grow,” DJO President and CEO Brady Shirley said in a news release. “At the same time, we felt it was important to continue the 40-year legacy of DonJoy in Southern California by continuing to build our bracing business in Carlsbad.”

The headquarters will be located at 2900 Lake Vista Drive, Lewisville.

According to the news release, over the next three months DJO will transition many of its corporate functions to Dallas, which will serve as the global headquarters for the company featuring a state-of-the-art customer experience center and a comfortably modern environment that supports employee well-being while encouraging collaboration. In addition to the relocation of many current employees to the new headquarters, DJO is creating hundreds of new job opportunities in the Dallas area, including many at its new distribution center in Fort Worth, which opened a few months ago and already employs over 200.
