Marle Group entered an agreement to acquire France-based 3D MEDLAB. Marle Group now has seven production facilities exclusively focused on orthopedic implant manufacturing for OEMs globally.
Additive manufacturer 3D MEDLAB specializes in engineering, design and development, and production of 3D-printed metal implants, polymer implants and components for the ortho, spine, trauma and cardio markets.
The acquisition expands Marle’s contract manufacturing offering with their new additive manufacturing solution that creates a total end-to-end solution. This solution supports research and innovation, product development, prototyping, various manufacturing platforms (additive, forging, casting, or subtractive machining), inspection and quality, complete packaging, and delivery of complex finished product.
Marle will continue to make strategic acquisitions and partnerships to expand its value-added portfolio for its OEM customers.
Antonio Gil, President and Heimo Wabusseg, CEO, Marle Group, said, “We are extremely excited about this strategic alliance and the opportunity to combine our forging, casting, and machining expertise with a proven 3D implant company. We had been looking to join forces with a partner to execute our growth strategy in the United States and provide our Marle Group customers with the latest in implant technology. This merger with 3D MEDLAB was a perfect fit for the Marle Team and we are confident that we will increase market share in 2021 and beyond.”
Frank D. Noone, Vice President, Marle America, said, “The acquisition of 3D MEDLAB represents a milestone in our strategy to strengthen Marle Group’s medical device contract manufacturing position in the orthopedic and spine market in the United States. We are excited to partner with 3D MEDLAB because of a shared commitment to constant innovation and a laser focus on customer satisfaction. This will give us an opportunity to gain access to new accounts and increase our presence in existing accounts by providing 3D printed implants and with the full scope of the Marle Group’s technical expertise, proven quality products and value-added service.”
