ARCH Medical Solutions enters the additive manufacturing space with acquisition of Amplify Additive
ARCH Medical Solutions Corp. (“ARCH”), on April 15, 2022, acquired Amplify Additive (“Amplify”) of Scarborough, Maine. An additive manufacturing company, Amplify develops and manufactures implants that leverage 3D metal printing, particularly in Titanium. Amplify now becomes ARCH Additive – Portland under the ARCH Medical Solutions umbrella, expanding the reach of ARCH into additive manufacturing for orthopedics and solidifying the company as a leading, diversified supplier noted for growth, scale and innovative solutions for customers within the medical device contract manufacturing market.
“This is an important milestone in the growth and evolution of our Medical Solution segment,” said Paul Barck, Divisional President of ARCH Medical Solutions. “Brian is an industry veteran within Orthopaedics bringing deep product design and additive manufacturing process knowledge to ARCH. With the Amplify Additive team and multiple additive technology platforms, we broaden our manufacturing capabilities to offer product development services, customized and patient specific devices, and full-scale production of 3D printed products to our existing and new customers.”
Brian McLaughlin, CEO and founder of Amplify Additive, sees the move as the start of a new chapter for the company he founded in 2018.
“We are taking our operations to a new level,” he says. “Partnering with ARCH Medical Solutions gives us access to a wider range of resources and capital to support our team and our commitment to manufacturing life-changing devices and implants for the orthopedic market. ARCH shares our vision to transform the future of the healthcare industry and amplify the benefits patients receive—that’s of great importance to us.”
Eli Crotzer, President and Chief Executive Officer at ARCH, says the acquisition is another piece of the company’s strategic growth plan.
“Acquisitions like this one fulfill our promise to offer medical OEMs innovative solutions that add value to their products and provide better patient outcomes,” Crotzer said. “The way the Amplify team combines clinical knowledge with engineering design and additive manufacturing is quite unique. This acquisition diversifies our solutions for orthopedic customers and expands the already impressive reach of ARCH Medical Solutions.”
