Solmetex acquires Sterisil to expand business in dental water treatment and safety

Solmetex, a provider of amalgam separators and other waste compliance products, has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Sterisil, an innovator of dental unit water line infection control products.

The combined company will create a business in dental water treatment and safety management for the US and international markets. This includes a commitment to strengthen and expand partnerships built over a combined 50 years, driving more effective compliance with water treatment requirements for both individual dental practices and Dental Service Organisations (DSO).

Sterisil brings 25 years of specialty in dental waterline infection control and, as part of the Solmetex platform, will expand and strengthen its ability to develop and implement transformational technologies. The two companies will continue focusing on clean water, safety, and waste recycling solutions to improve the ecological impact of caring for patients within the dental category.

Gene Dorff, CEO of Solmetex, stated: “This is an incredibly exciting time for Solmetex, and I am confident that adding Sterisil to our platform will ensure growth and expansion opportunities as we continue to deliver excellent customer service and high-quality, reliable products. I look forward to collaborating with the team to develop and execute our strategic vision for a successful future.”

Theresa Downs, Sterisil’s vice-president and co-owner, added: “We were meticulous in our search for a partner that would ensure Sterisil’s next chapter combined the ‘best of’ our proud legacy with the resources, potential and platform to help us launch our next phase of growth and diversification. Solmetex delivers on all accounts, and I am certain both companies will provide environmentally sound, effective, and safe products for the dental industry.”
