HUDSON, MASS. — ResTech Plastic Molding Inc. is expanding its reach to Berlin, Conn., with the acquisition of custom molder TechAtlantic Inc.

The combined entity will operate under the ResTech Plastic Molding name in both locations. Terms were not released.

TechAtlantic has 22 employees and operates 22 injection molding machines in a 64,000 square foot facility. The presses range from 22-500 tons of clamping force. The company has toolmaking and design capabilities with a tool room and full tool maintenance ability.

TechAtlantic serves a diverse clientele, working with customers on fluid filtration systems, medical components, automotive, personal care and electronics. According to ResTech, the current management will stay with the company.

Hudston-based ResTech said in a statement that it acquired a company with solid reputation in quality and customer service, and that the deal is part of an overall strategy to expand manufacturing in the United States.

ResTech was established in 2010 when Plastic Molding Manufacturing acquired Res-Tech Corp. The combined entity supports original equipment manufacturers and emerging high-tech companies. It has molding and design capabilities, and operates a Class 8 clean room with six electric presses with clamping forces ranging from 40-110 tons.

Overall, ResTech operates 36 injection molding machines and that number will be boosted to 58 with the addition of TechAtlantic.
