Company description

Patterson Companies Inc. began distributing dental supplies in 1877, but the modern history of the business dates to May 1985, when the company's management and certain investors purchased it from a subsidiary of The Beatrice Companies Inc. Patterson is headquartered in St. Paul, Minn. It became a publicly traded company in October 1992. The company was formerly known as Patterson Dental Company, but changed the name to Patterson Companies in 2004. Patterson's three business segments are dental supply, veterinary supply and rehabilitation supply. Dental products include x-ray machines, high-and low-speed handpieces, dental chairs, dental handpiece control units, diagnostic equipment, sterilizers, dental lights and compressors, in addition to office software and patient education services. Veterinary supplies include consumable supplies, such as lab supplies, various types and sizes of paper goods, needles and syringes, gauze and wound dressings, sutures, latex gloves, orthopedic and casting products, as well as equipment for hospital, laboratory and general surgical use within the veterinary practice. Rehabilitation products include dressing devices, braces, splints, walkers and exercise bands, among many other products. In April 2009, Patterson Medical acquired Mobilis Healthcare, a U.K.-based business with customers in the U.K. and France.
