The history of Heraeus Kulzer, Heraeus' dental health division, is the history of five successful dental companies (Heraeus, Kulzer, Bayer, Jelenko, Cavex) which have gradually turned into a large, world-wide operating company through the acquisition by Heraeus. The innovative capacity of this company has always left distinctive "footprints" along the way by developing new products for dentistry and dental techniques.
Our product range includes fissure sealants for prevention of tooth decay and dental restoratives as well as biocompatible precious metal alloys, artificial teeth and denture materials. Equipment and auxiliary processing products make our range of products complete.
Heraeus, the precious metal and technology group headquartered in Hanau, Germany, is a global, private company in the business of precious metals, dental health, quartz glass, sensors, and specialty lighting products.
The Group's objective is to be among the world's leaders in every one of these areas. With revenues of £á 6.9 billion (preliminary 2001 figures) and more than 9,100 employees worldwide in over 100 subsidiaries and associated companies, Heraeus has stood out for more than 150 years as one of the leading companies involved in precious metals and materials technology.
For Heraeus Kulzer, the dialogue and the cooperation with dentists and dental technicians, which is based on mutual trust, is the most important source of our innovative power. We gain our ideas for the development of competitive products and services and the innovative further development of our organization from this source.
We continuously adapt our business processes to the changing challenges and the requirements of our external and internal customers. We concentrate our efforts on ensuring a maximum degree of flexibility, promptness and reliability for the benefit of our customers.
Our employees are familiar with the long-term objectives of our company and their personal behavior is adjusted to these objectives. Therefore, our company culture is distinctively marked by readiness to innovate and creativity as well as predictability and reliability.
