W&H acquires Swedish specialist Osstell
W&H and Osstell have already been cooperating successfully in the dental market since September 2016, from which the latest generation of Implantmed, the world's first surgical device with implant stability measurement, was created. Equipped with the optional W&H Osstell ISQ module, the primary stability of implants as well as the optimum time for loading the implant can be determined by measurement of the resonance frequency. At the beginning of 2017, the cooperation was further intensified with exclusive distribution of Osstell products by W&H in selected regions. "The specialized company with its structure fits perfectly to the character of a family business, which is why we are confident that Osstell is a good fit and will become a valuable member of our W&H family,“ says Peter Malata. The new W&H subsidiary will continue to be managed by Jonas Ehinger who has been confirmed in his position of CEO. “Osstell and W&H have cooperated very successfully in the past, so it is a natural step that Osstell now becomes a part of W&H. As such, we have the opportunity for both stronger and broader global representation and greater delivery capacity – always with the aim to serve our customers and users with even better products and services as well as helping them to provide best practice services to their customers – the patients. Patients’ well-being is always the top priority,” says Jonas Ehinger, CEO Osstell.
Osstell AB will continue as the 19th W&H subsidiary with its own legal entity at the company location in Gothenburg (Sweden). The company name Osstell AB remains unchanged.
