Proclinic Group consolidates European leadership with the acquisition of VS Dental in Italy

  • The company reinforces its position in Italy, a key European market.

  • A new warehouse will enhance Proclinic Group’s logistics capacity, ensuring 24/48-hour product distribution within Italy.

Proclinic Group, a leading provider of comprehensive dental solutions in Europe backed by Miura Partners, has acquired VS Dental, an Italian dental products distributor based in Verona and founded in 1989.

This acquisition enables Proclinic Group to strengthen its presence in Italy, a mature and growing European market. Additionally, the company will expand its logistics capabilities, optimizing its distribution service to 24/48 hours in Italy through its new warehouse. This move reinforces Proclinic Group’s logistical infrastructure across the continent, adding this new distribution center in Italy to its existing ones in Spain (Zaragoza), France (Dijon), and Poland (Kielce).

Following the acquisition, the group expects to increase its revenue by €20m after achieving €256m in 2023. The international market revenue in the company is expected to exceed 50%.

Manuel Alfonso, CEO of Proclinic Group:

“This is a strategic decision that, along with recent selective international acquisitions such as Montellano, Exotec Dentaire, and Meditrans, will bring significant benefits to the group, allowing us to continue expanding dental health in other markets.”

Proclinic Group continues to strengthen its leadership in the international market, especially following the launch of Dent&Co fund by Miura Partners. This fund is currently supporting Proclinic Group in its growth phase, focusing on expansion and consolidation, enhancing service and customer experience, and broadening the range of products and services offered.

The transaction was advised by KPMG (DD and M&A).
