Noerr advised AURELIUS on the deal.
AURELIUS announced the simultaneous acquisition of dental bauer and Pluradent, two German dental distribution companies. The deals are conducted in close partnership with the Linneweh family, who very successfully built up dental bauer over the last decades. The Linneweh family reinvests into the newly created market player and stays on board as management team to drive forward, together with AURELIUS, the integration of the two companies and the further development into a leading European dental distribution platform.
AURELIUS will continue the existing business model of both companies as a dental distributor offering a full range of products and all related service parameters (materials, supplies and technical services) and further develop the newly formed group as a platform in the dental distribution market by engaging in buy-and-build activities.
dental bauer is a leading dental depot in the German-speaking countries and the Netherlands. Founded in 1947, the family-owned company distributes consumables, capital equipment and devices, and provides technical and consulting services for dental practices and laboratories.
Pluradent, which is headquartered in Offenbach am Main, is a renowned German dental distributor that supplies dental facilities with consumables, equipment and devices as well as technical services. The group operates foreign subsidiaries and has its own distribution centre in Kassel, Germany.
