The agreement provides Talladium Inc. with the rights to sell Candulor products in the United States.

The growing demand for removable products combined with Talladium's proven track record will allow us to rapidly enter the removable market and establish significant growth” said Jason Frazier, Talladium Inc.’s National Sales Director. “The newly added Candulor product line signifies to our customers that Talladium values their needs for quality products not solely on the crown & bridge side. Our customers are very pleased with the increased selection of product, the quality, and the price.”

Talladium, well known throughout the U.S., has built a reputation as a distributor of quality crown & bridge products with a special emphasis on supplying complete systems. The addition of the Candulor’s full removable line of products will allow Talladium customers to consolidate their purchases to one vendor.

"Candulor is quite pleased with the addition of Talladium to our rapidly expanding US distribution network. Talladiums reputation as a high-profile distributor of dental products in the US is well known to us," said Ted Smudde, Managing Director, Candulor USA. "Their commitment to quality and service, as well as their success in introducing new products, was appealing to Candulor. We are particularly pleased that they will be selling our tooth lines through their well established distribution network."

Candulor USA will continue to sell direct in the U.S. via its E-Shop and 800 number. The Talladium distribution will allow for Candulor customers and every lab, no matter where they are located, to have faster customer service and access to a larger base of sales representatives. The new arrangement also provides customers reduced shipping costs.

About Candulor USA

Candulor, one of Europe’s leading tooth manufacturers, was formed in 1936 in Switzerland. In 1952 Candulor was first introduced in the U.S. by Dr. John P. Frush via private labelling the Swissedent tooth cards. In 1993, Candulor once again private labelled their tooth lines in the US under the name Geneva 2000. On April 1st, 2008 Candulor formed its U.S. subsidiary, Candulor USA. At inception of the U.S. subsidiary, all Candulor lines began selling direct in the U.S. under the Candulor brand name. Over the last 15 years, the Candulor product portfolio has been significantly expanded: new tooth lines, new acrylics, dental devices and materials for characterizing the teeth as well as denture base materials round off the range. Today, Candulor is one of the few companies to offer a complete prosthetic system.
