The Argen Corp., the largest dental gold producer in the world, has acquired the worldwide exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights for all Captek products and technologies from Precious Chemicals Ltd. Captek restorations are known for their esthetics, strength and biocompatible properties.
"We are very excited about this opportunity for both Argen and Captek," says Anton Woolf, CEO of Argen. "We believe that Argen's vast global presence and unparalleled distribution network, combined with Captek's strong brand recognition and customer-focused vision, will further strengthen Argen's position in the marketplace and ensure growth of the Captek technology. We are proud to welcome Nick Azzara and his team into the Argen family."
Nick Azzara, former President of Captek, is now a Vice President of Argen and the Director of the Captek Division. His brother, Lou Azzara, the former CEO of Captek, joined Argen last summer as Vice President of Global Business Development. In addition, the entire Captek client services and technical team is joining Argen to ensure the strong, continued support of Captek Technology. The founders of Precious Chemicals Ltd. and co-inventors of Captek, Dr. Itzhak Shoher and Aharon Whiteman, MDT, continue to work with Argen's research and development team to further evolve the technology.
"We are proud to collaborate with such a prestigious industry partner," says Dr. Itzhak Shoher, Chairman and CEO of Precious Chemicals Ltd. "This is a wonderful opportunity to bring the Captek Technology to an even higher level of client support and accelerate global expansion."
