Straumann China: Campus Rendering Perspective

Shanghai, 26 March 2021 – The Straumann Group, a global leader in implant and esthetic dentistry, signed an investment agreement with the Shanghai Xin Zhuang Industrial Park (SHXIP) to establish its first Campus in China comprising a manufacturing, education and innovation center at one site. With an investment of up to 1.2 billion Chinese yuan by 2029, the China Campus will provide various educational programs as well as products from the Group’s implant and orthodontics portfolio for China, catering to the rapidly growing demands of Chinese dentists and patients for dental solutions.

“China has become one of the leaders and front runners of dental treatment and innovation worldwide. We are excited about strengthening our presence to meet the fast-growing demand of dentists and patients for dental solutions in China”, said CEO Guillaume Daniellot. “This investment demonstrates our commitment to our continued contribution to the health of the Chinese people.”

It is estimated that currently China has over 700 million patients who need dental and oral care, but only 5% visit dental clinics1. To significantly improve the Chinese public’s oral health literacy and behaviors is outlined as a goal in China's Oral Health Action Plan (2019-2025). Meanwhile, despite the lack of reimbursement, orthodontics have become one of the most in-demand treatments, especially in urban and developed areas.

“Building the Straumann Group China Campus not only demonstrates our commitment to bringing dental solutions to dentists and their patients in China, it also enables us to increase responsiveness and will support forthcoming product launches”, commented Kevin Zhang, Vice President and Country Manager China and added: “Our new China Campus will be part of the Shanghai Xin Zhuang Industrial Park (SHXIP),a technology cluster in Shanghai which houses a lot of excellent innovation platforms, providing many opportunities for future collaboration with local partners helping to accelerate digitalization.”

The first phase of the investment is planned to be completed in autumn 2023. By 2029 the China Campus is expected to generate potentially more than 1000 new job opportunities.
