Precision ADM, Inc., based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has entered into a strategic partnership with surgical solutions provider Tecomet, headquartered in Woburn, Massachusetts, USA, in an effort to expand the development and production opportunities of Additive Manufacturing. This collaboration is anticipated to allow the companies to jointly leverage their resources and knowledge to yield expanded capabilities and capacity for each organisation, whilst shortening development times for customers.

The partnership is intended to allow for the expansion of Precision ADM’s Advanced Digital Manufacturing (ADM) processes, which have already produced millions of additively manufactured implants and instruments for the medical market. It will offer additional process experience into new material areas for Tecomet (including nickel alloys, aluminium, cobalt chrome, and 316 stainless steel), while expanding capacity in titanium and 17-4 stainless steel.

With the focus on driving lead time out of the manufacturing process, this partnership is expected to allow Tecomet to utilise its entire portfolio of capabilities, and combine the experience of Precision ADM, to meet the rapidly changing trends in the market.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Tecomet, an organisation with a history of excellence that clearly values Precision ADM’s highly technical and advanced manufacturing processes and capabilities,” stated Martin Petrak, president, and CEO of the company. “Together with Tecomet, we will be able to offer clients shorter lead times and more efficient production with the same commitment to quality and manufacturing excellence for which we are both known. Our shared expertise and history in the medical device and aerospace industries leads to a naturally collaborative relationship. Precision ADM looks forward to a long and productive partnership with Tecomet.”

Bill Dow, President, and CEO of Tecomet, added, “We are excited about the partnership with Precision ADM. This initiative aligns with our steadfast approach to add value for global customers and provide full-spectrum, scalable manufacturing solutions. With this agreement, our customers will find a further commitment to innovation and continue to partner with Tecomet and our legacy of manufacturing successes. This commitment to growth excites me and I know our organisation will work diligently with the Precision ADM team to provide expanded additive-based solutions to our valued customers going forward!”
