CoorsTek Medical offers a range of production services, which include Additive Manufacturing as well as casting and machining, to a wide variety of medical device OEMs. The company also offers a range of production development services which are said to support its customers from concept to launch. 

Nelso Antolotti, Founder and Executive Chairman of UnitedCoatings Group, stated, “The acquisition of CoorsTek Medical is an historic milestone for the group. “This is our biggest acquisition to date and a major step in our internationalisation strategy.
