While many oral appliance manufacturers from the US to Australia are experiencing cut backs and declines in revenue, New York based oral appliance company, Respire Medical continues to find growth in the fabrication of oral appliances used in the dental treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Respire Medical continues to grow through partnerships and alliances including; appliance licensing, European expansion, and dental continuing education seminars with Sleep Group Solutions.
Respire Medical has consistently doubled product turnover each year in 2010, 2011 and now 2012. August 2012 (Q3 in general) marks the company’s largest growth in turnover, which is four times greater than the previous August in 2011. The company anticipates similar growth throughout 2013. “We had a solid year of growth. Q3 sales figures have exceeded expectation in a so called 'down market', so confidence is high going into Q4.” mentions David Walton, Co-founder of Respire Medical. Mr. Walton equates much of Respires growth to strict quality control, improvement of customer service, and continuing education.
In 2012, Respire Medical began a well researched strategic alliance initiative among seven of the largest dental laboratories in the country. These seven laboratories are among a small group of technicians, licensed and trained to fabricate the companies latest sleep device, The Respire Blue Series. This partnership alone, is anticipating major growth within the company for 2013. Known in the industry simply as, ‘The Respire’, this device demanded instant popularity among Dentists (and patients), due to the low price point, FDA clearance and durability of the design. The Respire is a dorsal appliance, with anterior opening, comes in hard or soft acrylic, with reinforced mesh welded to the screw (increased strength) and a price point of $249. Respire Medical also fabricates the FDA cleared Herbst appliance, The Pink Series. Another very popular device used in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
2013 will be a big year for Respire Medical, on the home front, and abroad. A European expansion across central Europe is in the works. This will introduce Dental Sleep Medicine, and The Respire Blue Series to many doctors in Europe, through a significant amount of seminars on Dental Sleep Medicine. “Going into 2013 we are allocating more strategic partnerships, releasing more products, and with the construction on our new lab almost complete, we are set up more than ever.” says David Walton. The company is also working on a new device for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea, which will be released mid year 2013.
