A global player's ascent

VOCO began life as a small family concern supplying a handful of products to dental practices and laboratories. The business evolved quickly – thanks to on-going investment in research and development, not to mention steady expansion of sales. The growth of research and manufacturing activities and a rising number of employees saw the company move into new purpose-built premises in 1992. Following two extension phases in 1997 and 2005 the production facilities grew to 22,000 m2. The addition of a prestigious new main building, inaugurated in 2013, featuring an integrated training centre and exclusive conference suite, not to mention the research and development department's building complex equipped with cutting-edge laboratory technology, the site is now nearing 39,000 m2. With this, VOCO is reflecting the expansion of its business in concrete terms, and is in the best position to meet the growing challenges of the global market and the increasing expectations of an international community of employees and customers alike.

Certified quality “Made in Germany”

All VOCO preparations are developed, manufactured, and assembled solely at state-of-the-art laboratories and production facilities at our company headquarters in Cuxhaven. This not only allows for interdepartmental cooperation that is both flexible and effective, it also guarantees that product quality is subject to thorough monitoring. With intensive testing and a certified quality management system, we ensure the ongoing and conscientious adherence to the highest quality standards for our brand products "Made in Germany".

Back in 1994, VOCO was one of the first German dental equipment manufacturers to establish a certified quality management system. All stages of our development and manufacturing process are subject to strict monitoring. As a result, VOCO ensures safety and quality standards relating to product development and manufacture remain consistently high. VOCO is certified according to EN ISO 13485, MDSAP and MDD 93/42 EEC – Annex II and also complies with Germany’s Medicines Act and US FDA legislation.

Since September 2021, VOCO has been one of the first German dental companies to be fully certified under the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) in accordance with (EU) 2017/745. Meaning that medical products of class I and Ila manufactured at the Cuxhaven site are always produced and placed on the market in accordance with valid European guidelines.
