Since the beginning, RMO® has led an international presence in the orthodontics community, shipping our first overseas order to the P. Grant Smith Dental Company in South Africa in the late 1930’s. With respect to our foreign efforts, we must extend extraordinary credit to Bay Brunson, Martin Hamilton, Sam Buckley, Lyn Turner, and B.A. Brusse for their significant contributions. Special recognition must also be extended to Tony Zakhem, our first Middle East Sales Representative responsible for further developing markets in South Africa and Italy, and who today heads RMO as our CEO.
RMO® has been awarded twice with The President’s distinguished “E-Star Award for Exports” by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce For continued outstanding contributions to the Export Expansion Program of the United States of America. Today, RMO® has over 60 dealers in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Japan, Mexico, the Middle East, and South America.
Many of RMO®’s great developmental strengths come from our valued relationships in which we exchange oral health concepts, innovations, and educational information. RMO® is supported by RMO® Europe as our subsidiary in Strasbourg, France, and privileged in partnership with RMO/Morita as our joint venture in Japan.
Combined, this network allows RMO® to service our customers around the world with progressive Synergistic System treatment solutions.
