The small Utah company that is known for it's revolutionary portable X-Ray unit the Nomad was just acquired by Kavo.  

Tom Batz, Mike Heyn, Steve Dawson and the rest of the Aribex team did an awesome job marketing the Nomad through the distribution channel.

One question that comes to mind is whether Patterson Dental will still have access to the Nomad now that Kavo will be taking over.

Bill ...

All Patterson personnel were told the NOMAD will remain in their portfolio both from Aribex and from Patterson management in St. Paul.  It's business as usual for Aribex and all of our NOMAD dealers across the US market.


Tom Batz.

Thanks Tom! Nice to have that cleared up. Congrats

I remember listening to a Danaher exec tell us that Kavo/Gendex and Pelton would always remain seprate entities too.  There would never be a "danaher" isle at tradeshows because thats not how they worked...we all see how that worked out.  Pelton & KaVo are under the same roof in Charlotte. How many owner/exec's of Danaher purchased companies are still around?  Take the payday and go enjoy some golf or sun...nothing wrong with cashing in.  It is a lot better than doing bowlers...As far as patterson goes, I am sure they will still take orders for the danaher products but they aren't out there focusing on them aka Instumentarium/Soredex

looks like Danaher swept out the  old reps and gave this Nomad line to the existing reps they already had...who knew?   oh yeah everybody .............pretty soon dds can buy all their equipment from Danaher and all their merchandise from 3M.....

yes, I know several at corporate that will be gone end of Feb.  It is not just Aribex several other Danaher companies have made some personnel changes.
