US-based 3D printing specialist TriMech has acquired US-based industrial 3D printing services and additive manufacturing technologies provider InterPRO Additive Manufacturing Group, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

TriMech is a portfolio company of The Halifax Group, a Washington, DC-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, fused deposition modelling, and large format stereolithography.

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 US and Canada.

Clients rely on InterPRO's expertise and equipment to help them advance their design ideas to usable end products.

Founded in 1996, InterPRO is led by president Dan Straka, who will become TriMech's general manager of Advanced Manufacturing.

InterPRO's team of engineers, materials experts, and service professionals will remain in place in the Connecticut facility, and the business will be known as TriMech Advanced Manufacturing.

TriMech adds the InterPRO team and facility to its existing manufacturing services.

Now, combined with the more than 40 3D printers at its existing advanced manufacturing and rapid prototyping facilities in Ontario and Connecticut, TriMech has more than 70 3D printers available for clients who need quick turnaround on quality printed parts and tools.

TriMech also sells and supports Stratasys, ExOne, and Xact Metal 3D printers, along with post-processing equipment and 3D laser scanners.

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, TriMech is a technology and business solutions partner for designers, engineers, and manufacturers.

It works with leading software and hardware partners, including Dassault Systèmes, Stratasys, and Artec, and its experts provide computer-aided design and engineering software, additive and subtractive manufacturing solutions, and associated training, consulting, implementation, and staff augmentation services for clients across a range of industries.
