“VOCO has a strong heritage of applying intensive research and development to create innovative dental products,” said Chuck Cohen, Benco Dental managing director.
“Their tenacity in setting new standards, even for products most take for granted, is perfectly aligned with our commitment to driving diversity forward in every way possible,” Cohen said.
Headquartered in northeastern Pennsylvania, Benco Dental is the largest family-owned dental distributor in the United States. Its Innovation Index tracks the percentage of products sold that were introduced in the previous three years.
Based in Cuxhaven, German, VOCO conducts research and development in direct and indirect restoratives, oral care, and digital dentistry. Its researchers partner with and maintain close contact with more than 150 universities and research institutes worldwide.
“Both companies have been family owned for generations, which gives us the advantage of operating on a mid- to long-term strategy rather than having to think quarter to quarter,” said Leif Ebert, CEO of VOCO America.
VOCO exports to more than 100 countries. Benco’s national network includes five distribution centers, three design showrooms, more than 400 sales representatives, and more than 300 service technicians.
