Company details

Kettenbach has been one of the most advanced companies in medical product manufacturing for decades. Our clear-sighted thinking in the development and marketing of products for the fields of dentistry and medicine has assured us a prominent global position. We stand for intelligent, straightforward and reliable solutions that are ahead of their time.

Our slogan summarizes this claim in just two words:
    Simply intelligent

Outstanding quality, which is extremely important to us at Kettenbach, can only be achieved when a highly sophisticated product is also easy to use.
Kettenbach is an internationally oriented family business based in Germany. It develops, produces and markets medical products that meet the highest quality standards under two business divisions: Medical and Dental.

Dental Business Division: Kettenbach is the specialist for complete solution systems in the field of dental impression taking. In addition to classic silicone impression materials, Kettenbach also offers materials for bite registration and a wide range of supplementary products such as mix systems, adhesives, disinfectants and casts, among others. Only this optimally coordinated system of materials, which takes into account every step in the impression process, can deliver the accurate results expected by dentists, dental technicians and patients alike. In addition to impression materials, Kettenbach also sets new standards in the field of esthetic dentistry with its tooth whitening product Visalys.

Medical Business Division: Kettenbach is one of the leading manufacturers of absorbent materials made from natural cotton and regenerated cellulose (Sugi®). For over 40 years, our customers around the world have relied on the universal applicability and high quality standards of our products.
At Kettenbach, total quality management is not a marketing catch phrase, but rather our everyday practice. Consistent high production quality is monitored and ensured by in-house quality control, certifications to DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 13485 are a matter of course.
