Eptam Precision Solutions is continuing to grow by purchasing medical component maker Mendell Machine and Manufacturing Inc. for undisclosed terms.
Mendell manufactures custom implantable plastic and metal medical devices, specializing in precision computer numerically controlled (CNC) micromachining. The company serves the endovascular, structural heart and cardiovascular markets, providing microsurgical components, microcutters and microhousings. For the orthopedics OEM market, it offers implants, plates, cages, stems and screws.
Mendell's services include multiaxis Swiss turning, prototype machining, five-axis mill turning and in-house finishing operations. The company employs around 80 at its 52,000-square-foot facility in Lakeville, Minn.
Eptam, based in Northfield, N.H., employs more than 450 there and at operations in Colorado and New Jersey. In addition to serving the medical market, Eptam performs custom machining for the semiconductor, aerospace and defense industries. It also offers clean room assembly, design-for-assembly and process validation.
In 2019, Eptam acquired Phillipsburg, N.J., injection molder Micro Molding Inc. and its subsidiary MedConnection LLC (now Eptam Precision Molding).
Eptam is owned by Seattle-based investment firm Frazier Healthcare Partners, which bought it last year from New Heritage Capital of Boston.
