Ivoclar Vivadent announces takeover of Sagemax Bioceramics

29th September 2017

Ivoclar Vivadent has announced the acquisition of Sagemax Bioceramics, the leading dental zirconia manufacturer in the US.

Founded in 2006 by Larry Dang, the company produces a range of zirconium oxide products  for the dental laboratory industry and maintains manufacturing, research and development and general business operations in Seattle, Washington.

It is best known for the super translucent zirconia brand NexxZr T, which was launched in 2011 and has become a foundation stone of the company's success. 

The firm can currently produce 30,000 discs per month, but is in the process of expanding its facilities to compensate for its recent strong growth, which Ivoclar Vivadent will be hoping to maintain following the takeover.

A statement from the company said: "Ivoclar Vivadent will keep all operations of Sagemax Bioceramics separate. It will operate as an independent company with a primary focus on zirconium oxide products for the global laboratory market."

Currently, Ivoclar Vivadent operates wholly-owned subsidiaries in 25 countries, and employs around 3,500 people worldwide.
