The largest privately-owned dental company in the United States ranks as a finalist for the second annual Governor’s ImPAct Awards in Pennsylvania.

Benco Dental Supply Company, with its home office located in Pittston Township, Pa., is among more than 247 businesses nominated statewide for creating jobs and making positive contributions to the state’s economy, according to a story in Times

The family-owned business, named one of Pennsylvania’s ‘Best Places to Work’ for 11 of the past 12 years, shares the spotlight with those in the Community Impact Award category.

Founded in 1930 by Benjamin Cohen, the company has remained focused on its unique mission to ‘deliver success, smile after smile.’  Over the past decade, Benco has been the nation’s fastest growing dental distributor, now servicing more than 35,000 dentists and dental laboratories.

Within the past 84 years, the company has grown from a single downtown location to a national network of more than 65 regional locations, five distribution centers, and two design showrooms.  Those design showrooms, one at the company’s Pa. headquarters and one in Southern California, feature North America’s largest selection of dental equipment and technology, as well as a hands-on dental design experience, to assist dentists in the planning and construction of a new office.

The Governor’s ImPAct Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Hershey, Pa. on May 30.
