Align Technology Inc, Santa Clara, Calif, is adding an international distributor for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

Gil Laks, currently vice president, international at Align Technology, will assume ownership of the new distributor, which will have sole distribution rights for the Invisalign system in more than 85 countries.

“The addition of a distributor for EMEA will give us a complete footprint around the world so that our partners can help develop smaller, emerging markets while Align continues its focus on larger, established markets,” said Thomas M. Prescott, president and chief executive officer of Align.
