Three companies within Danaher Corporation will comprise new company.

In the last half of 2019 Danaher Corporation plans to take public a separate company that will be named Envista Holdings Corporation, combining three operating companies within their dental segment.

These businesses, Nobel Biocare Systems, KaVo Kerr, and Ormco, have significant positions in dental implants, orthodontics, dental equipment and consumables, and include brands such as Nobel Biocare, KaVo, Kerr, i-CAT, Dexis, Metrex, Pelton & Crane, Ormco, Implant Direct and Orascoptic.  

 Amir Aghdaei, currently Danaher Group executive for the dental segment, will become president and CEO of Envista.                                                                                                             

Mr. Aghdaei stated, "Envista's name is a combination of two Latin root words: 'en', a prefix meaning to be within, and 'vista', meaning a view. Our logo of concentric circles represents our ability to collaborativelyachieve endless possibilities ahead. The Envista brand reflects the forward-looking energy that embodies our company culture."

Aghdaei continued, "Envista's culture will be built on four core values: better choices, better outcomes, relationships built on trust, innovation in action and continuous improvement as a competitive advantage. Our Danaher heritage helped us shape these values and serves as a strong foundation for our business. The Envista business system, which will be based on the Danaher business system, will be our common operating model."
