"We feel proud and honoured that we already could celebrate our 50th anniversary in Japan," said Martin Dürrstein, CEO of Dürr Dental SE, who is now the third generation to lead the internationally active family business. "We are particularly grateful for the support of our customers and partners in Japan and look forward to continuing to provide them with innovative products and services in one of the world's largest dental markets in the years to come."

After the welcome speech by Uwe Haul, Managing Director of Dürr Dental Japan K.K., Martin Dürrstein and Christian Schorndorfer, CSO of Dürr Dental SE, reviewed the history and milestones of the company in Japan. They are particularly proud of the new location and new building of the branch, which since 2019 offers state-of-the-art premises for exhibition, training and service. In the afternoon, the guests were taken on a tour of the showroom and had the opportunity to talk to Dürr Dental staff about the new products and services. 

Finally, the guests celebrated, danced and sang at the German-Japanese Oktoberfest with a beer tent, traditional music and food such as bratwurst, pretzels, German beer and Japanese sake. 

"The 50th anniversary together with our customers and partners will remain a positive memory for a long time. We look forward to successfully continuing our close and good relationship with them in the future," Christian Schorndorfer summed up.
