Building the future for 125 years – BEGO celebrates its anniversary

The family company founded in 1890 and based in Bremen on the river Weser 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," explains the Managing Partner of BEGO, Christoph Weiss.

The company is not only celebrating 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, are 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 which, today, has a workforce of approximately 450.

"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," announces Weiss. At the IDS in Cologne the Bremen-based dental specialist BEGO will be presenting its self-developed 3D printer, Varseo. It is optimised for dental applications and allows the production of a wide range of items made of resin in the laboratory. In addition to the printer, the associated materials, software tools and services for a rapid, simple and cost-effective production (of, for example, splints, surgical guides, CAD/Cast partial denture frames and individual impression trays) will be on display.

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. After all, this really is a cause for celebration!

Building the future for the last 125 years – this year BEGO will be celebrating the tradition and innovation of the family company which was established back in 1890 by Dr. Wilhelm Herbst.
