We are very excited to announce that our galaxy is expanding once again! Corus has integrated Byrnes Dental Laboratory, UK’s market reference in digital dental prothesis.
With this addition, we enter a new market to further consolidate Corus European footprint and leadership serving high-end digital prosthesis and orthodontics to advanced dental clinics in nine European countries. We are a network of 74 laboratories and more than 1,650 employees who serve more than 13,000 dental practices and more than 1.5 million patients spread across the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
This is a first step for us in the United Kingdom with further expansion planned in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. We seek to integrate reputed and advanced dental laboratories lead by local entrepreneurs, who then become shareholders, maintaining the highest level of service nationally to their existing clients.
Our strategies remain intact, making our family grow throughout Europe day by day. We work as a fully integrated digital platform, where dentists can interact with the laboratory and patient whilst ensuring the traceability of the prescription and delivering efficient and high-quality products and services to meet the patient expectations. Our network offers a global solution to dentists based on an innovative and differentiated portfolio of protocols of work, products, services, training and education while maintaining a local and personal environment, thus ensuring a better patient dental care and experience.
We are the vanguard on a human scale, and look forward to continuing our work with each and every one of you as we move into our next stage of expansion.
Juan Roma, founder and former CEO steps forward to be the new Executive Chairman of the company, appointing Nicolas Bonnard as the new CEO, with effect from next March.
We are very excited to announce that our family is growing even more. Corus and Signadens join forces under the Corus brand, with the aim of continuing to consolidate our position at the forefront of technology and innovation, supporting dentists throughout Europe.
The integration will see the company offering its products and services in Spain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Portugal through 63 laboratories and more than 1,500 employees.
