BEGO, the family company founded in 1890 and based in Bremen, Germany, has been producing dental products from a single source for 125 years. Today the company is run by the fifth generation of owners.
"2015 is set to be a very special year, and we want to celebrate this with our customers, partners and staff," says Christoph Weiss, Managing Partner of BEGO.
The company is celebrating not only the 125th anniversary of BEGO Bremer Goldschlägerei Wilh. Herbst GmbH & Co. KG, but also the 25th anniversary of BEGO Implant Systems GmbH & Co. KG and the 15th anniversary of BEGO Medical GmbH. In total, the company can boast 165 years of experience which, first and foremost, is based on the know-how and achievements of the company's founder Dr. Wilhelm Herbst. With the invention of the rotation method, he laid the foundation for this successful international group of companies that, today, has a workforce of approximately 450.
At the IDS in Cologne, BEGO will be presenting its self-developed 3D printer, Varseo. It is optimized for dental applications and allows the production of a wide range of items made of plastic in the laboratory. In addition to the printer, the associated materials, software tools, and services for the rapid, simple, and cost-effective production of items such as splints, surgical guides, CAD/Cast® partial denture frames, and customised impression trays will be on display.
"At the IDS, we want to demonstrate once again that we are rightly regarded as pioneers in the dental world. Visitors can look forward to the presentation of our 3D printing system which will revolutionise day-to-day work in laboratories and 3D printing," Weiss says.
The specially developed campaign "Building the future for 125 years – Happy Birthday BEGO!" to mark this anniversary will accompany all online and print material activities throughout the year.
