Healthcare Holding Schweiz AG, a leading Swiss Medtech services and distribution group, managed by Winterberg Advisory GmbH, expands Portfolio with Mikrona Group AG acquisition.
Healthcare Holding Schweiz AG has successfully acquired Mikrona Group AG. Mikrona Group, including its business unit Ortho Walker, expands Healthcare Holding’s offering with the comprehensive range of Orthodontic and selected Dental products.
This includes Orthora 200, Europe’s most popular orthodontic treatment unit, LX Master™ Mirror, an innovative dental mirror that includes different types of light and proud winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2023, as well as the biggest product offering of orthodontic parts and consumables in Switzerland representing all major international brands.
As a founding member of the ICCO (Interdisciplinary Competence Center of Orthodontics) Mikrona Group supports orthodontists, dentists, oral surgeons, speech therapists and other related professionals to further improve treatment and life quality of all patients.
The entire sale of the Mikrona Group to a long-term-oriented investor in the healthcare sector enables the further implementation of the national and international roll-out.
All employees at the Schlieren location and all customer and supplier relationships are taken over by Healthcare Holding Switzerland and will remain unchanged. In addition, the buyer aims to implement a sustainable growth strategy for the business.
With the sale of GHA to a management buy-in (MBI) investor, Mr. and Mrs. Scheidegger carry out a well- and long-prepared succession solution. The MBI investor has taken over 100% of the share capital of GHA and started managing the company as the new CEO in September 2023.
