Larident is a company that produces and distributes dental products. We are also present in the pharmaceutical sector with products related to hygiene and dental prophylaxis.
1950 - 1985
First Steps in the Dental Field
The founder of the company, Giuliano Cataldi, started working in the field of sanitary products distribution after the Second World War .
1961 saw the beginning of the distribution of chemical products and alloys for moulding used in all dental sectors.
On the 21st of January 1985 Larident was founded by Giuliano and his son Alessandro. The sanitary sector is gradually abandoned and the company concentrates on the dental sector, specialising in the production of plastic articles.
The quality of the products and their competitiveness on the market make the export market a fundamental part of the company from the beginning and for the first time a 50% share of the turn-over in 2014.
The World and the Pharmaceutical Market
Larident distributes, in Italy and in over 70 countries throughout the world, its own products and represents and distributes on the Italian market for well-known manufacturers like Hager & Werken (dentistry and lab products), Nordiska (filling materials), Polirapid (dental brushes for laboratories) and Varenkor (sintered diamobnd burs).
Larident develops new products in its efficient industrial department, equipped with 9 injection moulding machines used for the production of over 500 products; and so ideas become reality.
Since 2007 Larident has been operating with increasing success in the pharmaceutical sector, offering a range of products related to hygiene and dental prophylaxis.
The Value of Ideas
