Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft materials and coatings for medical applications, today announced a strategic alliance with DMP Spine Biologics (DMP) for distribution of Bacterin’s proprietary biologic products in the European Union. We anticipate that Bacterin products will be well received in many new markets with its strong brand, supportive clinical studies and DMP’s vast network of relationships.

Daniel Goldberger, Bacterin’s CEO, commented “We are pleased to have established this strategic relationship with DMP. They have extensive relationships throughout Europe and have a vast knowledge of the orthopedic and spine markets in various countries. The European markets represent a significant opportunity for our products. This relationship will allow us to enter the European market and expand our business internationally.”

We have already engaged distributors through our network and will be expanding distribution into various EU countries in the very near future.”

With the successful expansion of our ISO certification earlier this year, Bacterin is well positioned for international expansion. Growth through this new distribution channel will contribute to Bacterin’s current international strategy and will be incremental business for the organization.
