Straumann is a global leader in implant and restorative dentistry and oral tissue regeneration. Its recent combination with etkon, an emerging leader in CADCAM tooth restoration, makes Straumann the only company that provides solutions from bone augmentation and periodontal regeneration, through implants and abutments, to individualized ceramic inlays, crowns and bridges. By offering the ultimate technology and service, Straumann aims to be the partner of choice for dental professionals and their patients.
Since its foundation more than 50 years ago, the company has been characterized by a passion for innovation, scientific thoroughness, and entrepreneurial vision. This has led to many groundbreaking solutions that have shaped today’s industry standards.
Straumann’s exclusive and close cooperation with the International Team for Implantology (ITI), a renowned and independent scientific organization of more than 2000 leading experts, is unique in the industry. This collaboration ensures that the products and methods are scientifically well-founded, extensively documented and tested to provide outstanding and sustainable solutions for any clinical indication.
Straumann holds a leadership position in the worldwide market. Regionally the company is the market leader in Europe, and the number two in North America and the Asia/Pacific region.
The sector is considered to be one of the most exciting in the medical device area both in terms of long-term growth perspectives and opportunities for enhanced profitability. As penetration rates are still low, the market for implants and restorative dentistry and oral tissue regeneration products is expected to continue growing at around 15% annually for the next few years - which means that it is set to double over the next 5 years.
Straumann has been listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange since 1998 and is one of the outstanding success stories in the medical device universe. Since its IPO in 1998, the company has seen its share price rise more than 16-fold, yielding significant higher returns than medical device benchmarks and equity markets in general. As a result, the company has received a number of prestigious awards from business magazines and independent organizations for its growth, technological advances and sustainability initiatives. Furthermore, Straumann is included in the FTSE4Good Index, which means that it meets stringent social, ethical and environmental criteria and is positioned to capitalize on the benefits of responsible business practice.
