A5 ENDO TRIBUNE Dental Tribune Middle East & Africa Edition | 3/2018 Fig. 1 When an idea turns into innovation By Marc Chalupsky, DTI Although the headquarters of COL- TENE are in Switzerland, its endodon- tics plant is in southern Germany. At the factory, located in Langenau, a town between Stuttgart and Munich, 155 employees produce treatment auxiliaries and endodontic equip- ment in a fully automated and cam- era- and laser-controlled process.
