Tri Hawk celebrates 40 years

Celebrations and milestones

Canadian bur manufacturer Tri Hawk Corporation has celebrated its 40th anniversary with a combination anniversary/holiday party with its employees and their spouses.


Following a cocktail reception and dinner, company founder and CEO, Gustel Fischer and Vice President of Operations, Joanne Kydd, thanked the employees for their critical contributions to the company's success. The employees were then given a brief presentation on 2009 highlights, 2010 plans as well as the unveiling of Tri Hawk's new logo by Scott and Keith Macdonald, the marketing heads for the North American and European markets, respectively. A live band then surprised the German-born Mr. Fischer with a specially-written song called "Gustel the German Bur-Man" and sung to the melody from "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer".

Tri Hawk's singular focus has always been- and will always be - designing, manufacturing and marketing the most effective dental burs possible, which the company believes gives it a significant edge over its diversified competitors.

"We have an intense passion for burs, because we feel they are the most important instruments used by the dental practice," Mr Fischer said. "Many clinicians wrongly assume that all burs are alike, but the truth is that performance varies widely across the various bur brands."

According to Mr Fischer, customer feedback and independent studies indicate that Tri Hawk burs provide a combination of cutting speed, strength and safety that is unmatched in the industry.

In particular, Tri Hawk's Talon metal- and crown-cutting burs feature an exclusive over-the-top blade design that allows the burs to cut not only horizontally but vertically as well. As a result, Talon burs are able to cut through even the most challenging materials in a fraction of the time of other leading burs.

Privately-held Tri Hawk Corporation, founded in 1969, has its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Morrisburg, Ontario, Canada. Tri Hawk sells its products in over 40 countries throughout the world including Australia through Amalgadent, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.
