Darby Dental Supply Acquires Becker-Parkin Telesales Operation

JERICHO, NY--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Darby Dental Supply, LLC, the largest all-telesales distributor of dental merchandise, today agreed to acquire the telesales operation of New York City-based Becker-Parkin Dental Supplies and Equipment.

According to Darby Dental Supply president Gary Rosenberg, "Less than a year ago, we announced that we were refocusing our business to become the leading telesales distributor in the dental industry. Today's strategic acquisition puts that goal well within sight."

Under the terms of the agreement, all Becker-Parkin telesales accounts will become Darby customers and the 60-person Becker-Parkin telesales team will be offered full-time positions at Darby telesales branches in Jericho, NY; Tampa, FL; Pompano Beach, FL; Phoenix, AZ; Memphis, TN and East Lansing, MI. Darby will retain Becker-Parkin's telesales branch offices in Akron, OH and De Pere, WI to provide improved personalized service in the Midwest and across multiple time zones.

"The Becker-Parkin telesales staff are highly trained, seasoned professionals," explained Rosenberg. "Their dental product knowledge and industry experience will prove to be an asset to our vendors and customers alike. By joining Darby, they will be working for a company with a similar business culture, utilizing state-of-the-art ordering and logistics technology that does not divide its support between telesales and field sales reps. This is a winning situation for all."
