Interventional device contract manufacturer Biomerics said this week that it is merging with Northeast Laser & Electropolish (NLE), a Monroe, Conn.-based company.
NLE offers medtech contract manufacturing, laser processing, machining and metal-finishing services. The merger will create a metals division of Biomerics, called Biomerics NLE, to provide full-service metal processing to the interventional and surgical medical device markets.
Salt Lake City-based Biomerics will merge its advanced laser processing operations in Brooklyn Park, Minn., into the newly formed Biomerics NLE division, with plans to expand services and capabilities.
“It is that commitment to customer service and our employees that have been at the core of this company,” said NLE co-founder and Biomerics NLE east operations president Rich Rosselli in a news release. “We will stay focused on bringing that high level of service and employee commitment into this partnership. We are excited about what the future holds and are confident the partnership will advance our growth strategy while providing additional services for our customers.”
“Biomerics NLE will be the ‘Center of Excellence’ for Biomerics metals operations,” added Dave Liebl, president of Biomerics Advanced Laser. “The addition of NLE capabilities to the Biomerics Group fills an unmet need for our customers. We are committed to growing this division geographically as well as adding additional metal processing capabilities including CNC machining, Swiss machining, grinding, wire processing and secondary metal finishing.”
Biomerics’ manufacturing capabilities include materials, extrusion, injection molding, balloon manufacturing, braiding, metal processing and device assembly. It offers design, development and production of devices for interventional procedures in the cardiovascular, structural heart, cardiac rhythm management, electrophysiology, neurovascular, vascular access and gastrointestinal/urology markets.
