Ivoclar Vivadent celebrates growth
The success story continues at Ivoclar Vivadent as yet more positive changes are announced to the UK and Ireland company structure, enabling them to better serve the needs of all dental professionals.
Despite the tough economic conditions, Ivoclar Vivadent has enjoyed some great successes and seen some significant developments over the past decade, helping to keep them at the forefront of product innovation. Since 2003, the company has seen the number of employees grow from 14 to 40, helping to achieve double-digit growth year-on-year and increase their market share. More recently, the company’s investment in the International Centre for Dental Education (ICDE) in Leicester has given them great exposure and enabled them to offer CPD training and product solutions across the UK and Ireland.
Darryl Muff, managing director, said: 'Our customers are our life-blood and we will continue to focus on our unique blend of great people and products, backed by high quality dental education and bespoke marketing support. With these changes, Ivoclar Vivadent will be ideally placed to push forward with innovative and exciting strategies for the benefit of our customers.'
A team approach remains a high priority at Ivoclar Vivadent and the development of smaller, more focused, regional teams in the form of Clinical and Technical Product Specialists makes them ideally placed to meet and exceed the needs of customers. Their continued investment in employees and technology will ensure an even stronger force and focus to remain at the forefront of sales and marketing and continue to outperform the market in 2013 and beyond.
