Strategic Purchase Increases Scope of Products and Services Nationwide
Vancouver, BC, August 3, 2021 — Smile Innovations Group today announced the acquisition of Militech Inc., a dental handpiece sales, service and repair company, effective August 3, 2021.
Militech was founded in 2013 by former Canadian Armed Forces members from the Dental Services Division, Chuck Burley and Pierre Rozon. Seizing an opportunity in an underserviced market, Militech has grown to become the go to for expedited handpiece repair, servicing Dentists and Dental Laboratories in Eastern Canada. Their reputation for quality and timely service allowed them to expand nationwide and they later added on a Handpiece Sales Division, a natural progression from the repair side of the business.
As with other dental brands under Smile Innovations growing portfolio, Militech, located in Gatineau, Quebec, will continue its operations with minimal change. Former co-owner, Chuck Burley will continue support the company in a sales capacity, while Pierre Rozon assumes a new role with his former company, Milident Inc., recently acquired by Smile, as Executive VP, Business Development.
The acquisition allows Smile significant leverage with their core business; dental laboratories located across Canada. Donald Park, Smile’s CEO notes, “I am excited to expand our solutions, services and brands to the dental community, and greatly admire what Chuck and Pierre have built over the last decade.” Pierre shares the same enthusiasm. “With the broad footprint Smile has established, this new partnership will allow for increased distribution and service channels we had previously not been able to support, and in addition, gain considerable competitive advantage due to the increased portfolio of services.
Smile Innovations Group is a private investment company, focusing on dental laboratory acquisitions, consolidation and the development of dental products and services. Established in 2018, the management of Smile Innovations Group offers extensive experience and success in the operational management of large-scale businesses and continually seeks out additional opportunities to add to their growing portfolio of companies.
