Bloomfield Hills-based ARCH Global Precision has acquired a company in Arizona that manufactures precision-machined parts for the commercial aviation, defense, and space industries for an undisclosed transaction price.
In addition to machined parts, Morsch Machine, located in Chandler, Ariz., manufactures electronic mechanical support components, enclosures, chassis, and modules.
Morsch and its approximately 50 employees join the ARCH Precision Components Segment, strengthening the company’s position as a supplier to aerospace and defense markets worldwide.
With a broad range of capabilities in 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis precision machining, structural adhesive bonded assembly, mechanical assembly, 3-D printing, and engineering CAD/CAM design support, Morsch expands and solidifies the precision-machining and manufacturing capabilities at ARCH Precision Components Segment locations across the United States.
“We’re excited about partnering with Morsch Machine and welcoming new team members and customers to the ARCH family,” says Andy Spiering, president of the ARCH Precision Components Segment. “This important and strategic acquisition accomplishes numerous ARCH Precision Components goals, among them adding deep manufacturing capabilities, expanding capacity in mid- to high-volume work, and broadening capabilities to include structural adhesive bonding.
“Operationally, this acquisition allows ARCH to merge our Mesa (Arizona) operations with Morsch to create a collectively stronger company called ARCH – Chandler. At this location, we will elevate our service to our customers with comprehensive capabilities including turning, 3-axis machining, 4-axis automated cell systems, 5-axis complex machining, adhesive bonding, and assembly.”
Joe Salontai Sr., former owner of Morsch Machine who is continuing as president, says, “While considering our future and planning for the long term, we determined this is the appropriate time to partner with a larger company that offers financial stability and expanded resources for our continued growth. Careful thought and analysis went into this decision. ARCH Global Precision is the right partner for Morsch Machine with core values that mirror our own and an industry reputation for excellence. Our company, employees, and customers will benefit greatly from the extensive experience, breadth of capabilities, and hands-on leadership of ARCH.”
