DMI acquires dental supplier in Northern Ireland

by Guy Hiscott

DMI, one of Ireland’s largest dental and medical suppliers, has acquired 100% of the share capital of Dentaquip Limited, a dental supply company based in Lisburn, Co Antrim.

DMI hopes the investment in Dentaquip will further ‘reinforce its position as an all-Ireland dental supplier’.

Pat O’Brien, CEO of DMI, said: ‘We are delighted to acquire such a reputable company. The acquisition of Dentaquip will expand the range of products and services available for Dentaquip’s customers, provide more opportunities for employees and create additional value for dental professionals in Northern Ireland.’

Both companies have similar agencies such as A-dec, Carestream, Dentsply, 3M Espe – to name a few. DMI and Dentaquip also have a strong focus on establishing partnerships with customers and business partners.

The companies intend to rationalise some processes over the coming months to ensure customers obtain the benefits of scale associated with both companies coming together.

In the meantime, it is business as usual for both companies in terms of how they interact with suppliers and customers.
