Arch, a Bloomfield Hills-based manufacturer of precision components for the medical, aerospace, and defense industries, has acquired Sonora, Calif.’s MMi, a similar company with expertise in precision manufacturing for the robotically assisted surgical market. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
MMi will join the Arch Medical Solutions segment and bolster the latter’s position as a growing supplier to the medical market. MMi’s core competencies include high-precision complex machining, prototyping to production, testing, assembly, and finishing. These advanced competencies are complementary to the existing high-precision machining capabilities at Arch Medical Solutions locations across the country, according to the company.
“We welcome all MMi colleagues and customers to the Arch family of companies,” says Paul Barck, divisional president of Arch Medical Solutions. “This acquisition is strategically important as it demonstrates our commitment and deliberate move into the rapidly expanding robotically assisted surgical market.
“The MMi acquisition also adds to the depth of our machining capabilities for complex, tight-tolerance machined components and devices for the surgical robotics and precision motion control hardware industries,” he continues. “MMi has established themselves as a critical supplier to the world’s leading manufacturers within these markets, and becoming a member of the ARCH family will provide the opportunity for us to more broadly support and serve our customers.”
William McDonald, former co-owner of MMi, says, “The timing is right for MMi to join forces with Arch Medical Solutions, a growth-oriented strategic partner, and this move will be beneficial for our employees and our loyal customers. ARCH shares the vision and core values that we live by every day at MMi, and we are looking forward to our partnership with the ARCH team.”
