Kirton McConkie Client Aribex Acquired by KaVo Dental Group
Kirton McConkie client, Aribex, a leader in portable and handheld X-ray products, was recently acquired by the KaVo Group, which is part of Danaher, a leading global dental equipment brands company.
Aribex’s innovative products are supported by strong patents, intellectual property and a robust new product pipeline. Kirton McConkie intellectual property attorney, Kenneth Horton, has provided IP legal counsel to Aribex since 2004 and was responsible for all intellectual property due diligence during the acquisition process. Aribex has vigorously protected its intellectual property over the years and has sued several companies with competing products over alleged patent infringement.
The company, founded in 2003, will remain in Orem, UT, with the same management and operational staff, said founder D. Clark Turner, PhD.
Turner noted that Danaher likes to maintain the brand names and visibility of its associated companies and most people connected with Aribex will not see a difference in terms of operations and people.
