- The acquisition reinforces Proclinic’s value proposition with an increased portfolio of dental products and solutions, and more efficient distribution in the main European markets.
- The group expects to reach a turnover of more than €220 million in 2022 and to exceed 500 employees.
Proclinic Group, a Miura Partners portfolio company and a leading integrated solutions provider for the dental sector in Spain, has acquired Meditrans, one of the leading distributors of dental products and services in Poland, based in Kielce.
This transaction allows the group to consolidate its presence in the Central European market, especially in strategic countries such as Germany and Poland, and to strengthen its value-added services by adding a new e-commerce to the group’s digital platforms.
Founded in 1991 and with a staff of more than 120 professionals, Meditrans’ product portfolio will be integrated into the group reaching 100,000 references of dental products and solutions for clinics and laboratories in Europe. Meditrans currently distributes 20% of the dental consumables market in Poland.
Proclinic Group will integrate Meditrans’ plant and warehouse into its network, contributing to develop a more geolocalized distribution strategy together with the automated logistics platform in Zaragoza (Spain), thus ensuring a more efficient and sustainable delivery to the main European countries.
Following the acquisition, the group expects to reach more than €220 million in turnover by 2022 -more than 35% of which will come from its international activity- and to exceed 500 employees. All in all, Proclinic Group is positioned as one of the leading companies in Europe in comprehensive dental services thanks to a reinforced international presence and logistics capacity, the manufacture of high-quality clinical consumables, training and learning services, and technical assistance.
For Manuel Alfonso, CEO at Proclinic Group:
“This transaction represents the consolidation of our company in the European dental sector thanks to an increase in our logistics capabilities and access to key international geographies. At the same time, we are advancing in digitalization and strengthening our value proposition: quality dental products and services, unparalleled customer service and training for dental professionals.”
