Summit Research Labs (SRL) Dental GmbH

Based in Ludwigshafen, SRL is a leading manufacturer and distributor of gypsum-based products and special alloys for dental and medical technology applications, 3D printing as well as technical mould design.

SRL’s current business began with the patent for the production of alpha hemihydrate in the middle of the 19th century. The products are used in an array of applications with a focus on specialty dental and technical applications. SRL produces plasters, resins, investment materials and synthetic calcium sulfates in its own production plant. Products are sold under private labels and the SRL brand in more than 75 countries.

The company benefits from an outstanding reputation for quality and manufacturing expertise, especially in the area of gypsum products, which is reflected in its diversified and loyal customer base. The company had been part of Elementis since 2017 and was acquired by Fidelium in a carve-out.

With Fidelium we will now focus on further positioning SRL as an independent company, using the new degrees of freedom along with a clear strategy and increased agility to extend our market position in the dental and technical segments. The management and employees are looking forward to actively shape this exciting opportunity in an independent environment.
