We're Amann Girrbach North America, the U.S. division of Amann Girrbach AG, a company with a combined 100-year history of support for dental technicians pursuing accurate, aesthetically pleasing restorations.
Emerging in 2004 from two medium-scale companies (Amann Dental GmbH & Girrbach Dental GmbH), AmannGirrbach, with its headquarters in the four-country corner in Vorarlberg, Austria, is pursuing a highly successful course of expansion. Constant growth and permanent internationalisation are based on expertise in development and excellent customer service. Amann Dental GmbH began in 1973 primarily as an original equipment manufacturer of laboratory equipment for dental technicians and dental laboratories. The company was founded as a one-man company by Dietmar Amann in the garage of his residential house, but rapidly developed into a 100-employee company with modern facilities. From 1992 onwards Amann Dental exported its equipment worldwide under the umbrella brand "Amann Dental Equipment". Girrbach Dental GmbH was founded in 1936 under the name of "Zahnwarengroßhandlung Südwest" by Herbert Girrbach. Even then the product range focused on the still developing craft of dental technology: it was not only technically related to the goldsmith profession but was also located near Pforzheim, which is known as the "Gold Town". In the second generation Karl Girrbach expanded the business to 110 employees and under his management the company gained a good reputation as a supplier of complete systems. The product range was ideally complemented due to the fusion of both companies to form AmannGirrbach AG. At the headquarters in Koblach, Austria, the main focus is on Research and Development whereas in the second company home at Pforzheim, Germany the emphasis is on Service and Sales. The local subsidiary in Charlotte, NC, USA provides service and support for distributors and markets the full Amann Girrbach product line to the North American market. In the past few years the product range has been modified with the changeover to digital processes in prosthetics. Digital fabrication of frameworks under the umbrella brand Ceramill is an integral component along with the classic product segments of Model Management (model fabrication and articulation) and Aesthetic Management (porcelain – veneering). The large number of new products launched in recent years is an indication of our high innovative power.
