A new quality of digital workflow:
Core3dcentres® and Dental Direkt join forces
For dental laboratories and dentists, digital positioning represents an important step
in securing their competitive position and providing optimum patient care. Now, with
Core3dcentres® and Dental Direkt having just joined forces, they have even better
support available. Under the motto "close to you", both companies plan to jointly
develop pioneering digital solutions close to the customer in future.
This strategic partnership combined with the Core3dcentres® stake Internationally at Dental Direkt
GmbH, this step not only underpins the market position of the two still independent
companies – it also offers dental laboratories and dentists powerful synergies for
successfully chiselling out their future digital success.
"With our grass roots philosophy and values, we clearly stand out from industrial competitors
in the sector and want this to remain so, despite this dynamic corporate development," states
Gerhard de Boer. For the Dental Direkt GmbH (Spenge, Germany) founder and Managing
Director, this made maintaining the flexibility and independence of his family-run business
extremely important when choosing a strategic partner.
As an owner-managed group of companies, Core3dcentres® pursues similar values and
relies on quick decision-making, an enthusiasm for digital progress and a strong emotional
relationship with its employees and its own operation. The result is an entrepreneurial
success story on four continents, which will now be continued in tandem with Dental Direkt.
"In the current environment, I am convinced that modern dental companies need a strong link
to provide customers with innovative value," explains Sebastiaan Cornelissen, Managing
Director, Core3dcentres® international (Maartensdijk, The Netherlands). "Laboratories and
dental practices need workable digital solutions and workflows that continuously enhance
dental quality and economic efficiency. Together with Dental Direkt, we want to provide our
customers with solutions to this challenge. That is our clear aspiration."
Enormous efforts in development and skills in all areas of CAD/CAM technology and
materials are needed for solutions to be able to take that one decisive step forward. This
makes the alliance consistent and logical. The result will be a unification of the core
competencies of Core3dcentres®, one of the world's leading CAD/CAM laboratory groups,
and the material expertise of Dental Direkt, Europe's largest manufacturer of zirconium oxide.
This multiplies the opportunities for material and technology development in the
internationally positioned group of companies.
The tie-up between the two companies will now facilitate the provision of material concepts
and optimised production solutions for in-house or outsourced production. The transfer of
services and knowledge to the user forms the linchpin for existing and new customers using
the opportunities the innovative technology provides to their advantage. "With our joint IDS
motto of "close to you", we want to underline precisely this direct and personal aspect of our
work," state Gerhard de Boer and Sebastiaan Cornelissen. Milling centres and training
academies in Canada, the USA, Australia, Benelux, the United Kingdom, Poland, Spain and
Japan make the services of Core3dcentres® available locally. The representative office in
Germany is now acting under the umbrella of Dental Direkt GmbH and is looking forward to
making first-class international expertise available to local users.
