Acquisition offers several new advantages for MRPC, including plastic injection tooling and more cleanroom capacity
MRPC, a single-source provider of medical device components and assemblies, has acquired New Hampshire-based Johnson Precision, a global supplier of plastic injection moulded components and assemblies.
Johnson Precision has extensive experience providing moulded components as well as finished medical devices for the medical industry.
The acquisition offers several new advantages for MRPC. Johnson Precision has mould making capabilities to build plastic injection tooling, a service that MPRC did not offer previously. It also has a Class 8 cleanroom, bringing MPRC’s total to seven cleanrooms.
In addition, Johnson Precision and its joint venture partner in Malaysia are both FDA-registered to produce finished medical devices. That partnership also opens new business opportunities for MRPC in the Pacific Rim region.
‘We’re extremely pleased to have Johnson Precision join our operations,’ said Greg Riemer, President and CEO of MRPC. ‘The company fits in especially well as we continue our growth strategy, which includes internal sales growth as well as through acquisitions. This facility’s New Hampshire location will support our customers in the northeast while also adding to our ability to attract new business in that region,’ Riemer added.
Johnson Precision employs approximately 40 people, and its New Hampshire facility will continue full operation as a division of MRPC.
The addition of Johnson Precision follows other recent expansions of MRPC. In 2014, MRPC completed a facility addition at its Butler (Wisconsin, USA) headquarters. The facility expansion included hiring additional staff, installing another ISO Class 8 cleanroom, and purchasing several new state-of-the-art moulding machines to meet growing capacity needs. MRPC’s most recent acquisition occurred in 2012 when it purchased ETI, a silicone molding company in Largo (Florida, USA). The total employment at all three facilities is 200.
