Dentsply Sirona sells Futuredontics to Congdon Street LLC

 
 
 
 

The divestment of Futuredontics is part of Dentsply Sirona’s plan to focus on the core business and deliver innovation.

“We are very happy that Congdon Street LLC will take over the ownership of Futuredontics. Fred Joyal is well-known and appreciated within the company and the industry and has strongly contributed to the success of the company in the past,” comments Walter Petersohn, Chief Commercial Officer at Dentsply Sirona. “We are convinced that with Congdon Street LLC as new owner of the company, Futuredontics will continue its success story. We look forward to continue working with Fred Joyal and the Futuredontics team.”

“We are extremely pleased that this transaction creates an opportunity from which both sides will benefit,” says Fred Joyal, of Congdon Street LLC and former CEO and Co-Founder of Futuredontics. “Futuredontics will remain an important partner of Dentsply Sirona while, at the same time, we will be able to focus even stronger on our own specific customer base and further develop our company as an independent business. The Futuredontics team and I are eager to serve our customers in new and exciting ways.”

The parties have agreed not to disclose financial terms of the transaction.
