SINGAPORE, May 5, 2017 – Structo, a Singapore-based dental 3D printing solutions provider, announced distribution partnership with Techceram – one of the industry’s leading resellers of CAD/CAM solutions. The agreement came into effect in April 2017, and will allow Techceram to offer the full range of Structo products to its UK community.
“We are very happy to have Techceram as our UK distributor. Their demonstrated expertise and knowledge of customers in the UK provide a great fit for our solutions,” says Huub van Esbroeck, one of Structo’s founders. “We have identified Europe as a key market for Structo and I am looking forward to seeing how this partnership can improve on ground support for our customers,” he adds.
Techceram is one of the biggest distributors of CAD/CAM solutions in the UK. The company owns a high tech laboratory supplying the latest ceramic polymer and metallic restoration options to over 200 laboratories across the country. Techceram also supplies the latest ‘Open System’ equipment to laboratories to enable them to offer full in-house services, ranging across milling machines, scanners and furnaces, all complemented by training, service contracts and engineer support
This partnership marks Structo’s further expansion into the European market and demonstrates their focus on rapidly growing their global presence. Having just launched their latest MSLA-equipped DentaForm printer, one which can print up to 50 microns accuracy at record speeds, Structo is confident that their application-based approach to product development will significantly benefit the adoption of digital dentistry in the region.
“Structo’s products provide a powerful combination of market leading speed and accuracy, and we believe that our established presence in the UK will be a good platform for their further growth here,” claims Richard Buckle, Director at Techceram. “Joining this partnership not only increases our product offerings but also extends the commitment we have made to our customers to bring them the latest technology and complete solutions,” he adds.
Techceram will be exhibiting their products at the upcoming Dental Technology Showcase (DTS) 2017 at Birmingham UK, from May 12th to 13th. Visitors who would like to get a hands-on experience with Structo’s OrthoForm orthodontic 3D printer can visit their booth G01, adjacent to the DTS lecture theatre at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham.
Techceram will also be running a keynote titled “Turnkey Digital Labs” with a panel of experts across the digital workflow at DTS. There will be 2 sessions, the first being on May 12th at 11.30am and the second on May 13th at 3.00pm. The panel will discuss the challenges of selecting digital solutions that meet both lab and clinical needs and how open integration enables growth.
