The addition of Dinsmore expands polymer additive capabilities of ADDMAN
We are pleased to announce the addition of Dinsmore, a leading provider of polymer 3D printing services, to our manufacturing solutions network. This transaction marks the fifth acquisition for ADDMAN over the past 24 months. The addition of Dinsmore further broadens ADDMAN’s polymer production capability which is complementary to the existing additive and traditional manufacturing services already offered. The ADDMAN and Dinsmore transaction was supported by American Industrial Partners and Fredrikson & Byron served as legal counsel.
Dinsmore is known for its expertise in go-to-market and rapid manufacturing, supporting prototyping and low-volume production for customers with a concentration in medical applications. The company operates over 35 additive machines using leading technologies such as MJF, PolyJet, DLS, DLP, SLA, FFF and FDM. Joe Calmese, CEO, ADDMAN, states “This announcement marks the expansion of ADDMAN’s ability to support medical industry partners. We are planning for significant investment and growth in this arena going forward, and Dinsmore will serve as a core part of this strategy.”
Jay Dinsmore, Founder and CEO, Dinsmore, provides “The synergies between our brands were undeniable and it made the decision to join ADDMAN an easy one for myself personally, along with the long-term advantage it provides my staff. ADDMAN operates with a level of integrity and understanding of additive that matches the high value proposition that is synonymous with the Dinsmore brand. Simply put, these folks get it! I’m happy to be a driving force in expanding their polymer business.”
Dinsmore continues “Now that we are a part of the ADDMAN network, we can deliver a suite of new services, such as injection molding, CNC machining, metal additive manufacturing, and ISO 13485 cleanroom molded parts. This move extends our capacity to support customers through their complete product lifecycle.”
Calmese reflects on the caliber of talent in the organization, stating “By joining forces with Dinsmore, we now have the largest roster of AMUG-awarded DINOs under one roof.” The Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) awards Distinguished Innovator Operators Awards (DINO) to honor top leaders in the additive field. ADDMAN’s five DINO employees and advisors include: Dr. Youping Gao, Bob Markley, Jay Dinsmore, Bill Braune and Jason Lopes.
“We solve problems first and print second. Some of the most recognized in our field resonate with this mission and chose to be a part of the culture we are building. The knowledge transfer and development of our staff, led by these individuals, is something I am so incredibly happy to see each day across our now 8 locations.” concludes Calmese.
