The basis for the success of Dreve company is the handcrafted manufacturing of custom medical devices, dentures in the beginning and later on earmolds. The introduction of CAD/CAM technologies for the manufacturing of earmoulds and ITE shells meant for us a fundamental change in technology we have been successfully dealt with. In January 2004 we implemented an earmold production based on the FotoTec® stereolithography process as the first earmold laboratory worldwide. Today we also run CAD/CAM laboratories in Singapore and the USA.
