Benco Preparing to Move into New State of the Art Facility

The good folks at Benco are about to do something pretty big. Read on for the press release.



WILKES-BARRE, PA (June 1, 2009) -- Benco Dental, the nation’s fastest-growing distributor of

dental products and equipment, is proud to announce its plans to open an industry-leading, state-

of-the-art headquarters and distribution center in Jenkins Township, PA.

“We will have all functional departments under one roof, which will increase both productivity and

communication between departments for over 400 associates,” Benco Vice President of

Operations, Lou Mangino, said.

Located in the CenterPoint Commerce and Trade Park in Jenkins Township, Benco Dental’s new

facility will combine two locations currently housing the company’s headquarters, main distribution

center as well as secondary warehouse into over 272,000 square feet of office and warehouse

space. With easy access to five major highways and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International

Airport, CenterPoint is a key logistic for customer access and shipping.

As part of the expansion, Benco Dental will now offer the largest equipment showroom in North

America. With 24 fully equipped operatories of dental equipment from all major manufacturers,

such an equipment display has never before been available in the dental industry. Doctors from

all across the country will have access to this first-of-its-kind showroom as part of VIP tours

hosted by Benco Dental. Along with taking in North America’s most unique showroom

experience, doctors will have the opportunity to enjoy the countless hotels, fine dining

restaurants, and recreation facilities within close proximity to the headquarters.

“Our new facility will enable Benco to remain a leader in the dental industry for decades to come,”

Benco Executive Vice President Rick Cohen said. “We are thrilled all of our associates and

customers will be part of this monumental move with our family as we begin a new chapter in

Benco’s history.”
