BOSTON, MA – After a long pause, Creation Technologies is back on the acquisition trail. The EMS company today announced its second acquisition in the past month, acquiring Meridian, ID-based Computrol for an undisclosed amount.
In August, Creation also announced plans to acquire IEC later this year.
“The addition of the Computrol team will significantly enhance our ability to serve customers. Computrol shares our values of providing exceptional customer service and outstanding quality,” said Stephen P. DeFalco, chairman and CEO, Creation Technologies.
Creation said the acquisition expands its capabilities in the medium volume/high reliability segment servicing Aerospace & Defense, Medical, and Tech Industrial customers. It adds locations in Meridian, and Westminster, CO, offering seven highly automated state-of-the-art SMT lines and over 100,000 square feet of production space.
As a result of the acquisition, Creation will establish a New Product Realization Center by moving its design services team from Golden, CO, to Computrol’s Westminster site. The center will feature Creation’s Launch with Excellence to Advanced Production (LEAP), a stage gate NPI process that improves the ability to rapidly launch new designs.
