DentalEZ to Acquire Forest Dental
Malvern, PA (December 20, 2018)—DentalEZ has announced the acquisition of Forest Dental, a 45-year-old manufacturer of dental operatory equipment. Located in Hillsboro, Oregon, Forest is known for its highly reliable yet simple technology. The acquisition of Forest Dental gives DentalEZ an exciting new addition to a diverse and growing portfolio of dental products.
The acquisition of Forest Dental allows DentalEZ to continue with its new long-term strategic goals. The complementary product offering extends the DentalEZ reach across a variety of customer segments. In addition, the companies will be able to leverage the benefits of shared supply chains and operational functions.
Current Forest customers will have the benefit of availing themselves to the more diverse line of products available from DentalEZ. Plus, the two entities will be able to utilize a single sales team, professional sales associates, that is already familiar with Forest Dental Products.
The Forest Dental brand will continue as part of the DentalEZ portfolio of products, and the company will go to market as Forest Dental Equipment. The current Forest Dental leadership team will remain in place in Hillsboro including Hank Barton who bought Forest Dental in 2004.
