World Class Technology Corporation (“WCT”) designs, manufactures and/or distributes a full line of proprietary orthodontic products. These products include buccal tubes, brackets, lingual buttons, elastics, instruments and the recently launched self-ligating system products (H4 and the H4 Translucent), all sold under the Ortho Classic brand name. The company also contract manufactures certain products for other orthodontic brands and customers in other industries. From its roots as a pioneer in metal-injection-molding manufacturing, WCT today creates some of the highest quality orthodontic components in the industry.
Due to its design expertise and manufacturing skills, WCT is able to offer orthodontic products with superior quality to its competition, at a competitive price point. This provides potential customers with a significant value proposition that offers a benefit to both doctors and consumers in the form of shorter treatment times, as well as a benefit to doctors of less expensive hardware.
H4 Bracket – The H4 is a high quality self-ligating metal bracket designed with a onepiece base and radial contours which helps prevent plaque buildup typically found in most brackets in the marketplace. The H4 has extremely tight tolerances which create a consistent slot size for the wire, and designed to give the orthodontist a higher level of control over the tooth movement during the finishing stages of treatment. The H4’s design also allows it to adhere more easily to the tooth, and with a stronger bond, minimizing bond failures.
C-Thru Bracket – The C-Thru is also a translucent, resin-based bracket, but has a unique low-profile design structure that is less than half the height of the normal industry standard bracket. The smooth contoured design flows naturally against the tooth, providing superior patient comfort making it harder
for people to notice in a patient’s mouth. C-Thru significantly reduces treatment time, treatment cost and puts more control back in the hands of the orthodontist.
Mini-Twin – The Mini-Twin follows an industry standard bracket design, one that every orthodontist in North America is familiar with. While WCT’s minitwin offers superior quality manufacturing, the design is similar to that of many other brackets in the marketplace. There is a subset of orthodontists in the market who are most comfortable using the traditional design of bracket in their practice which is why WCT will continue to offer this style of bracket.
WCT has spent years refining its manufacturing techniques and processes, which has resulted in superior product quality, high yields, and cost efficiencies. WCT’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility includes CAD/CAM design, CNC, EDM, Metal Injection Molding (“MIM”), sintering and coining equipment.
Based in McMinnville, Oregon, WCT has an extensive customer base, with over 700 active customers around the world. With increased revenue, strong EBITDA and the backing of Caltius Equity Partners, WCT is well positioned for future success.
