Planmeca makes strategic investment in E4D Technologies

Partnerships and collaborations

Planmeca, the world's largest privately owned dental imaging company and equipment manufacturer, has made a non-controlling, strategic investment in E4D Technologies, LLC, developer of the E4D CAD/CAM Restorative System.


This strategic investment reinforces Planmeca's on-going commitment to help dental providers improve patient care by offering a comprehensive portfolio of integrated digital solutions for dentists and labs. Planmeca will co-develop CAD/CAM products with E4D Technologies and Henry Schein, Inc. will continue to be the exclusive distributor in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, Planmeca will expand distribution of the E4D system to more than 120 additional international markets under the Planmeca PlanScan and Planmeca PlanMill brands. "Planmeca's investment in E4D Technologies offers us an opportunity to grow our company globally," said Dr Gary Severance, Chief Marketing Officer for E4D Technologies. "In addition, Planmeca has been a market leader in extra-oral digital imaging for many years, and we look forward to furthering the seamless integration of our CAD/CAM platform with the additional digital solutions offered by Planmeca. Our customers will benefit from the combination of these unique and innovative products and services." Under the new agreement, Planmeca joins the partnership of Henry Schein and Ivoclar Vivadent, who have been strategic equity partners in E4D Technologies since 2007, along with certain members of E4D Technologies' senior management team.
