Henry Schein to acquire Polish dental distributor Marrodent

31st August 2016

Henry Schein has agreed a deal to acquire an 80 percent ownership position in the Polish dental company Marrodent.

The company is one of Poland's largest full-service dental distributors, generating sales of approximately $32 million (24.4 million pounds) in 2015. The acquisition marks Henry Schein's entry into the dental market in Poland, where it already provides animal health products.

Marrodent is headquartered in Bielsko-Biala and operates a facility in Warsaw, distributing dental consumables and equipment, as well as dental laboratory supplies and equipment. It serves approximately 10,000 office-based dental practitioners across the country.

Founders Roman and Marek Stekla will own the remaining 20 percent of Marrodent and will join Henry Schein as part of the deal, as will the country's chief executive officer Artur Podolski.

Stanley Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein, said: "We see considerable opportunity to expand this business among the country's approximately 26,000 practicing dentists and approximately 20,000 dental offices."

Henry Schein reported global dental sales of $5.3 billion, with the takeover of Marrodent meaning its dental business now has operations or affiliates in 27 countries.
