DELANO, Minn.—Sil-Pro L.L.C., a provider of contract manufacturing and engineering services to the medical device industry, has acquired MMI Precision, a supplier of high precision machining to the medical, aerospace, defense and specialty equipment markets.
Sil-Pro will take full ownership of the firm and rename it Sil-Pro Machining Solutions starting in January, according to the company. The acquisition will expand on Sil-Pro's current value-added manufacturing and full device manufacturing capabilities.
“Machining Solutions is a great fit for Sil-Pro and fulfills part of the strategic plan,” Sil-Pro President Kevin Carver said in a statement. “When our core medical business in clean room injection molding of silicone and thermoplastics is combined with the capabilities at Machining Solutions, it immediately enhances and extends Sil-Pro's ability to better serve our customers.”
He said the enhanced capabilities—such as Swiss and 5 Axis machining of exotic metals and plastics coupled with automated precision machining cells—will offer more value to many current and future projects.
“We already feature on-site design and development and in-house tooling and automation departments,” Carver said. “The addition of medical machining demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with complete manufacturing solutions for their medical device programs.”
Machining Solutions will begin doing business as Sil-Pro in January on Sil-Pro's campus in Delano. Sil-Pro's in-house machining department will offer custom machined parts for the medical industry, while continuing to serve existing aerospace and defense customers and grow future customer relationships within the aerospace and defense markets.
