Heraeus and Benco Dental Team Up to Help Customers Turn Scrap into Cash

Posted on May 14, 2012

SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the worldwide leader in dental esthetics, announced today that it is partnering with Benco Dental to make it more profitable and convenient for Benco customers to trade in their scrap metals for cash. 

Heraeus, the world's largest private precious metal refiner, and Benco, the largest privately owned, full-service dental distributor in the United States, note that there are three reasons why dental practices and laboratories should cash in their scrap on a regular basis:

  • Accountability:  Scrap is unaccountable, while regular, frequent shipments allow customers to keep track of their assets.

  • Liquidity:  Precious scrap is not liquid until it is cashed in; raw scrap collects no interest.

  • Security:  Scrap stashes are not insured; insurance companies will not reimburse in the event of fire or theft.

Countless laboratories and dental offices trust Heraeus Precious Metal Refining to provide exceptional service and unsurpassed integrity.  The company guarantees fair market value for customers' precious metals (gold, platinum, palladium and silver). Settlement is based on the London PM prices on the day of assay valuation. Customers can be paid in gold investment coins, with a check, and/or electronic transfer.

Heraeus Precious Metal Refining heats, melts, separates and analyzes precious metals in a single location to give laboratories and dentists the highest possible return for their dental scrap metal. By eliminating surprise fees and minimum lot charges, Heraeus is able to give its customers the utmost in value and service.

Considered the global gold standard in dental esthetics materials, Heraeus operates a state-of-the-art refinery in Newark, New Jersey.  The facility receives more than 25,000 scrap shipments annually, 80% of which are from existing loyal customers. Because it processes its own scrap from beginning to end, Heraeus offers direct, personalized contact without any middlemen, saving time and money for its valued customers.
