Pittston, PA (PRWEB) May 12, 2011
Benco Dental, the nation’s fastest-growing distributor of dental products and equipment, today announced plans to acquire Al’s Dental Repair Service, Inc. in June 2011. This marks Benco Dental’s ninth acquisition since 2008.
Headquartered in Fresno, California, Al’s Dental is an A-dec dealer specializing in equipment sales and repair. Once acquired, it will become Benco Dental’s Fresno branch and play host to a new region fully servicing the Central Valley market.
“The acquisition of Al’s Dental Repair Service fits perfectly with our business and development strategy of seeking out like-minded companies who are intensely customer-focused,” said Chuck Cohen, managing director of Benco Dental. “As with each company acquired, our goal is to combine Al’s Dental Repair Service’s strengths with our own wide breadth of services and inherent efficiencies.”
Al’s Dental Repair Service and its President, Al Johnson, have been serving the Fresno area for more than thirty years. Johnson and his entire team will remain in their current positions with Benco Dental.
"Our goal at Al’s Dental Repair has always been to be an important asset to the practices we serve," noted Johnson. "Benco Dental will provide us with the necessary tools to accomplish that goal and we are so pleased to become a part of the Benco family."
