Dentsply announces acquisition of QAHR, agreement for New Zealand's Triodent

By ,

York-based dental products company Dentsply International Inc. said Friday it has completed an acquisition for QAHR, a direct dental selling organization in Asia.

QAHR, based in Hong Kong, also has operations in mainland China and the two firms have had a commercial relationship since 2000, according to a news release.

The relationship has primarily focused on certain dental implant brands, the release stated.

Dentsply also said today it has reached an agreement to acquire certain assets of New Zealand-based manufacturer Triodent, maker of professional dental consumables for use in restorative dentistry.

The two represent about $30 million in aggregate annual revenue, Dentsply said. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Shares of Dentsply, a maker and distributor of dental and other consumable medical-device products, are traded on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol XRAY.
