Melville, NY– In an effort to gain a foothold in Kentucky, California, and Texas, medical, dental, and veterinary supplies giant Henry Schein has acquired the dental distribution operations of Phoenix, AZ-based Zila. Terms of the all-cash acquisition were not disclosed. Zila will become part of Henry Schein’s U.S. dental business, Sullivan-Schein Dental.
Schein intends to continue operating Zila’s sales and service center in Kentucky and will merge Zila’s centers in California and Texas into its own facilities in those states. Sullivan-Schein Dental has nearly 70 sales and service centers throughout the country.
