Butler Schein Animal Health has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Scil Animal Care Company Inc. to offer the Aesculap line of orthopedic implants and Osteosynthesis kits to the North American veterinary market.
Butler Schein will prominently feature Aesculap’s Wire and Cerclages, Mini and Small/Large Fragment Sets, according to Scil of Gurnee, Ill.
Scil said it chose Butler Schein to launch these new products to the North American veterinary market because “they are the leading companion animal health distribution company in the United States.” The Dublin, Ohio-based company has about 900 team members, including 300 field sales representatives and 200 telesales and customer support representatives.
Butler Schein, in turn, identified an orthopedic need in their product offerings, according to Scil.
The new partnership will officially launch at the North American Veterinary Conference on Jan. 15-18 in Orlando, Fla.
Scil will also be launching their new Scil Vet Academy Continuing Education courses for 2011 in partnership with Butler Schein. Scil’s Surgical Sales Specialists will assist course attendees along with local sales representatives from Butler Schein.
So far, more than 40 orthopedic continuing education courses are slated for 2011.
