The deal, said EPTAM CEO Mark Kemp, allows the companies to combine their complementary capabilities and provides customers with a “one-stop shop” for orthopedic, cardiovascular, minimally invasive surgery and robotic-assisted surgery components.

No transaction price was provided.

Founded in 1981, EPTAM itself was acquired in January 2020 by Frazier Healthcare Partners. It specializes in polymer machining, precision metal machining and injection molding. It has over 450 employees and has two other facilities besides Northfield, one in Colorado. Springs, Colo., and the other in Phillipsburg, N.J.
