PITTSTON, PA — August 27, 2015— The sophisticated furnishings of Herman Miller and Nemschoff have been used in stylish, versus sterilizing, healthcare environments for five decades, elevating the human experience of care. As a new Herman Miller Healthcare dealer, Benco Dental, the nation’s largest privately-owned dental distribution company, now offers oral health professionals an elevated new world in which to work.
The integration of Herman Miller and Nemschoff lines of furniture into its CenterPoint design showrooms will allow Benco Dental to provide a unique opportunity for its customers: Addressing all of their interior design needs in one place.
“From flooring to wall coverings, and now with the addition of the Herman Miller and Nemschoff lines of furniture, our CenterPoint Design team is ready to create the dental practice of singular style. With our new product offerings from Herman Miller, our company has proven its commitment to being the sole source for all dental practice needs,” said Pat Arsenault, Director of Equipment Sales and CenterPoint Services at Benco Dental.
Aligned in their missions of empowering great people to do great work, the three enterprises offer products and services of a complementary nature as well. Founded in 1950, in 1957 Nemschoff entered the healthcare market with designs based on a study exploring ways to improve care for the elderly. This began the company’s legacy of research-based design. Herman Miller Healthcare and Nemschoff made their official debut as unified brands in 2011, bringing together unmatched expertise and the industry’s most comprehensive product offering globally. Within the past 83 years, Benco Dental has grown from a single downtown location to a national network of more than 65 regional locations, five distribution centers, and two design showrooms. Those CenterPoint design showrooms, one at the company’s Pennsylvania headquarters and one in Southern California, feature North America’s largest selection of dental equipment and technology, as well as a hands-on dental design experience, to assist dentists in the planning and construction of a new office.
Charles Cohen, Benco Dental managing director, said that he looks forward to uniting Benco’s full-service approach with Nemschoff’s commitment to craftsmanship and Herman Miller’s research-led approach to offer inventive designs based in ergonomic and healthcare expertise.
“As part of the Benco difference, we strive to deliver a broad array of products and services and insightful solutions. We begin each initiative by asking ‘what does the customer want’,” Cohen said. “Our goal is to combine Herman Miller and Nemschoff’s problem-solving design with Benco Dental’s industry expertise and willingness to try new ideas.”
