Delegates including Trade Ministers of both New Zealand and Ireland met at Two-Ten Health offices in Dublin to celebrate the merger by acquisition of Ireland-based Two-Ten Health by New Zealand headquartered Titanium Solutions.
Irish Minister of State for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Robert Troy, New Zealand’s Minister for Trade and Export Growth Damien O’Connor, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise representative Nick Swallow, New Zealand Trade Commissioner for the United Kingdom and Ireland, Natalie White, Enterprise Ireland’s Neil Bolger and Judith Frances from the International Federation of Dental Education Associations were present at the ribbon – tying ceremony marking the occasion.
By joining forces Titanium Solutions – a developer of enterprise solutions for Electronic Oral Health Records (EOHR) with more than 15 years’ experience and Two-Ten Health with it’s 25 years of experience providing leading dental management solutions for Dental Hospitals and Dental Universities the merged company is now well – positioned to bring clinical , business, education and research solutions to many more large institutions globally.
Titanium Solutions Group CEO Paul Weatherly says “Expanding New Zealand businesses need to adopt more novel approaches to growth compared to similar – sized businesses in the US or Europe.” He says that buying a company with a similar product but in a different market is a less usual way of expanding, but that he has seen it work very well previously. “The approach of trying to partner with local resellers or start from scratch in a totally new market as a means of expansion is slow, expensive and not guaranteed to work. Having people on the ground closer to the markets you are entering just makes good business sense.”
Despite pandemic- imposed limitations, the merger was completed in time for Minister Damian O’Connor’s official visit to Dublin, which has “developed a compelling proposition for innovators” according to the TNW FDi European Tech Cities of the Future Report 2020/21 (which ranked the city second for both economic potential and foreign direct investment (FDi) performance, and third overall).
