Dentsply Sirona, York, Pa, announced that it will sells its shares of SICAT GmbH & Co KG to HICAT GmbH, which is owned by the management and employees of SICAT. As a result, the company will be wholly owned by SICAT management and its employees.

SICAT develops and markets 3D based analysis and planning software, surgical guides, and therapeutic appliances for various dental disciplines.

According to a press release from Dentsply Sirona, the two companies will continue their strategic partnership, with no changes for their customers. The existing SICAT products sole by Dentsply Sirona will continue to be offered as usual.

“Dentsply Sirona and SICAT profit from this agreement. We look back on over 14 years of a shared history in which both companies have grown. Now, we are taking our successful collaboration to a new level. This will offer each partner more flexibility in their options and put them in a better position to diversify their products individually” says Michael Geil, managing director at Dentsply Sirona’s Bensheim site and group vice president of equipment & instruments.

“We are very pleased to have found such a good solution for the future of SICAT and to manage the company completely independently. SICAT will remain a strategic partner of Dentsply Sirona for the development of software-based solutions for x-ray imaging. We will continue our excellent collaboration, but can now focus more specifically on our customers. In addition, we are now able to offer our solution to the entire dental market” says Jochen Kusch, managing director, marketing and sales at SICAT.
