TriMech, a strategic technology partner to engineers and manufacturers across North America, has acquired InterPRO Additive Manufacturing Group. The newly formed group expanded its advanced manufacturing and rapid prototyping service capabilities to over 70 AM machines. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. TriMech is a portfolio company of The Halifax Group, a Washington, D.C.-based private equity investor.

Based in Deep River, Connecticut, InterPRO provides industrial 3D printing services, urethane and silicone casting, and custom part fabrication and finishing. Their in-house additive manufacturing technologies include multi-jet fusion (MJF), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and large format stereolithography (SLA). InterPRO has one of the largest deployments in North America of the new and in-demand Stratasys Origin P3 system, which produces injection-mold quality parts and tools. The acquisition allows TriMech to build on its professional custom 3D printing services, which include providing high-performance prototypes, tooling and manufacturing aids, end-use parts, and low-volume manufacturing runs. Adding InterPRO’s diverse technology and experienced team enhances TriMech’s ability to serve clients across the U.S. and Canada.

“The pace of change in additive manufacturing continues to accelerate. Advances in plastic and metal printing, speed and workflow, and higher-volume production are changing customer requirements and expectations. This acquisition brings together more experts and a broader technology offering so we can be the best possible partner to manufacturers of all sizes,” said Marcel Matte, President and CEO of TriMech.

Clients rely on InterPRO’s expertise and equipment to help them advance their design ideas to usable, high-quality end products. Their team of technicians and problem solvers has a track record of meeting the complex and high-precision needs of demanding sectors, including healthcare and medical devices, aerospace and defense, industrial manufacturing, and consumer electronics.
