Beacon Manufacturing Group has acquired precision molder Acromatic Plastics and will make the 110,000-square-foot facility available to its Beacon MedTech Solutions business to support future growth plans. The company has also entered into a partnership agreement with Sumitomo Demag to purchase several injection molding machines, with the first two expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Plans are underway to add cleanroom capacity and build out Beacon’s tooling and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) molding capabilities at the facility in Leominster, MA. This will enable Beacon MedTech to meet demand for its contract manufacturing services and precision molded products, components, and sub-assemblies for single-use and Class II medical devices and other life science applications.
“We’re committed to expanding our footprint, scale, and capabilities to support our customers’ growth and are enthused that capacity upgrades, leasehold improvements, and new equipment installations are scheduled to be completed during the first half of 2022,” said Bob May, CEO of Beacon Manufacturing Group. “At the same time, we are pleased to offer Acromatic’s customers greater access to expanded capabilities, engineering resources, and services.”
Now known as Beacon Engineered Solutions, Acromatic Plastics will continue to provide its customers with the high-quality products, components, services, and support that they have come to expect from this mixed-use facility. Customers will benefit from expanded molding capabilities and engineering services, as well as Beacon Engineered Solutions’ track record of success in launching custom, complex, precision-molded products and component assemblies for use across a broad range of industries and end-use applications, said Beacon in its press release.
