Amann Girrbach North America, LP and Zahn Canada, a division of Henry Schein Canada, Inc., have mutually agreed to end their existing distributor relationship in the Canadian market. Current market trends, sales demands and other economic reasons made the parties reevaluate their existing relationship and ultimately decide to end it.
The working relationship, which started in 2015 and primarily involved Zahn Canada distributing Amann Girrbach products and services into the Canadian market, will end on December 31, 2020.
Customers who previously purchased Amann Girrbach products from Zahn Canada and are on active warranty and protections plans, and/or need service/repair will be supported by Amann Girrbach North America, LP starting January 1, 2021. “The service and warranty agreements that were originally agreed upon will be honored and customers will receive 100% support by Amann Girrbach”, says Ramon Flores, National Sales Manager for Amann Girrbach North America.
