Zurich, Tokyo, Munich, January 26th, 2017 – The shareholders of the dental retailer abc dental ag located in Schlieren near Zurich were successfully advised by Carlsquare.

As a reliable retailer with web-shop, abc dental ag covers the entire range of services and products for Swiss dentists. The company was founded in 1998 and has established itself as a reliable supplier with more than 4,500 dentists in Switzerland.

Carlsquare advised the sales process in the course of which international strategists and financial investors were approached. CBC (Europe) GmbH, a subsidiary of CBC Co. Ltd., was advised by the Globalscope member Kaede Financial Advisory.

It provides a smooth transition and creates the best conditions for further growth. The new owners work closely with the existing management and will position abc dental ag as an independent and successful dental company.
