Proto3000 and Core3dcentres Announce Strategic Partnership

Industry News · LMT Communications, Inc. · Oct 03, 2013

Proto3000 and Core3dcentres (Core3d) are pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership through which they will jointly serve customers across Canada offering them their combined suite of equipment, materials, training, support and milling services. Under the terms of this agreement, customers that purchase equipment from Proto3000 will gain access to Core3d's industry leading knowledge and milling capabilities and will be able to purchase materials from Proto3000 such as high translucency zirconia at competitive prices. Proto3000 customers will also gain access to Core3D's loyalty programs for milling services enabling labs to expand their offerings into areas, such as metal, at attractive price points. The partnership will help democratize the market and empower lab owners to embrace digital technology and increase profitability.

Steven Bulwa, Dental Solutions Manager at Proto3000 Inc. says, "We saw a fractured market that didn't need to be that way. With this partnership, customers can count on one source for all their digitalworkflow needs. That one source will make sure customers have access to consumables such as milling blanks and burs of the highest quality at the best prices and that they are properly trained and supported to receive the maximum benefit from their digital equipment."

Mark Maier, President - North America's Core3d Centres, says, "We have invested significant capital in systems and know-how and because of our global scale we can offer customers significant cost advantages with both consumables and milling services. In the digital era, a combination of in-house milling and outsourcing to larger milling centres is the most profitable way to structure lab operations. We are here to help support customers identify the best use of resources and support them. We chose to work with Proto3000 because we share a similar philosophy of customer retention through best in class quality and service."

The first development from the introduction of this relationship is the Proto3000/Core3d scanner promotion. Purchase a scanner now from Proto3000 and receive free, 5 Core3d Scan Bodies and the Core3d custom abutment library (a $500 value). Also, receive your first abutment or crown free with immediate registration in the Core3d loyalty program where customers are entitled to volume rewards quarterly. The companies also announce the availability of Core High Translucency Zirconia available in 98mm discs.
