Mid­mark Corp. an­nounced it is mov­ing its head­quar­ters to Austin Land­ing from Day­ton.

The provider of med­i­cal, den­tal and ve­teri­nary health­care equip­ment so­lu­tions an­nounced it has fi­nal­ized lease ne­go­ti­a­tions and will move its head­quar­ters to Austin Land­ing by Oct. 1, 2018. Mid­mark will move ap­prox­i­mately 20 to 25 po­si­tions from the cur­rent Day­ton lo­ca­tion.

The move will in­clude mem­bers of its C-suite, fi­nance, clin­i­cal af­fairs and other select po­si­tions and will con­sol­i­date its West Ch­ester of­fice to the Austin Land­ing lo­ca­tion.

“Our de­ci­sion to lo­cate our head­quar­ters within the Day­ton re­gion con­tin­ues to be a pos­i­tive one. The area is rich in tal­ent and in­no­va­tion, and the im­pact is vis­i­ble through­out Mid­mark,” said Bob Mor­ris, chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer for Mid­mark. “The city of Day­ton and the Univer­sity of Day­ton have been in­cred­i­ble hosts over the past five years and we thank them for their sup­port. We look for­ward to our con­tin­ued part­ner­ship as we main­tain our pres­ence in the area.”

The new head­quar­ters will move to the Austin Land­ing de­vel­op­ment lo­cated at the cor­ner of Penny Lane and Rigby Road. The of­fice will be a 12,000-square­foot space lo­cated on the third floor of an of­fice that is to be con­structed in 2018.

“Mid­mark’s pres­ence on cam­pus strength­ened our part­ner­ship and we are es­pe­cially grate­ful for the sup­port ex­tended to our stu­dents in learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and state-of-the-art equip­ment,” said Univer­sity of Day­ton Pres­i­dent Eric F. Spina. “We look for­ward to build­ing on our val­ued part­ner­ship as the com­pany con­tin­ues to grow.”

The Univer­sity of Day­ton Re­search In­sti­tute will ex­pand into the for­mer Mid­mark space in the 1700 South Pat­ter­son Build­ing.

Mid­mark will also con­tinue with plans to break ground in Ver­sailles for its new tech­nol­ogy cen­ter in 2018, which is ex­pected to bring 97 new jobs to the re­gion. The Ver­sailles cam­pus will re­main Mid­mark’s largest site, hous­ing pri­mar­ily man­u­fac­tur­ing, as­so­ci­ated sup­port func­tions and the cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence depart­ment. The tech­nol­ogy cen­ter is a $40 mil­lion in­vest­ment, in­clud­ing more than $20 mil­lion in ma­chin­ery and equip­ment.

John Bau­mann as­sumed the role of pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer in Jan­uary 2016, and Anne Eit­ing Kla­mar was ap­pointed chair of the board of di­rec­tors after serv­ing as pres­i­dent and CEO. Un­der Kla­mar’s lead­er­ship, Mid­mark po­si­tioned it­self on a firm path to­ward $1 bil­lion in an­nual sales, of­fi­cials said.

The com­pany has nearly 1,700 em­ploy­ees world­wide.
