Dear Clients and Suppliers,

On 24th of November, 2008, ZHERMACK announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to enter into a partnership with DENTSPLY. The partnership will operate as ZHERMACK, not as DENTSPLY.
Zhermack, thanks to its own know how achieved in the chemical field and the technologies developed through synthesis systems, is today a company which is internationally appreciated for its production of raw materials and impression products, and has attained significant market shares worldwide, distinguishing itself from the major international players present in such a competitive arena.
DENTSPLY designs, develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of products for the dental market. With over $2 billion in annual sales and over 9,000 employees, the Company believes that it is the world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of dental prosthetics, precious metal dental alloys, dental ceramics, endodontic instruments and materials, prophylaxis paste, dental sealants, ultrasonic scalers, and crown and bridge materials; the leading United States manufacturer and distributor of dental handpieces, dental x-ray film holders, film mounts and bone substitute/grafting materials; and a leading worldwide manufacturer or distributor of dental implants, impression materials, orthodontic appliances, dental cutting instruments, infection control products, and dental injectable anesthetics. The Company distributes its dental products in over 120 countries under some of the most well-established brand names in the industry.
In the future, ZHERMACK will maintain unchanged its structure, independence and brand image in the market.

We will work both to further build up the ZHERMACK brand with the introduction of new products which will enhance the current product range, and at the same strengthening business relationships and building market shares with all our clients worldwide. There are no plans to alter terms and conditions of actual agreements beyond normal commercial conditions. There are no plans to change product quality, service, or relationship contacts.

The strategy will be established respecting the autonomy of the two companies and with the aim of maximising their presence in the market. We strongly believe that the partnership with DENTSPLY will enable us to increase investments in new and ambitious research projects and to improve the current production and employment level. Furthermore the use of joint communication and marketing strategies will bring about an improvement of the efficiency of the support and promotional activities for our clients.
We will continue to manage ZHERMACK, with the support of our team, with the same passion, energy, respect and professional ethics which have characterized us in these last 27 years, keeping faith to our mission of innovation and continual growth.

Aware of their importance, we will also increase the relationship with our current suppliers who have supported our growth for decades in the international scenario.
We are confident of your precious support also in this new partnership, and we sincerely thank you for the professional attitude and loyalty you have always shown us, thanks to which we have reached this important goal.
