Micro announced this month that it has opened a new 15,000-square-foot R&D center in a recently purchased building next to its present facilities in Somerset, N.J.
The acquired 50,000-square-foot building will also serve as Micro’s headquarters offices, allowing the company to optimize manufacturing in the two other locations next door.
Micro dedicated the new research center in honor of its chair Frank Semcer Sr., who started at Micro in 1969 under the auspices of his father. Semcer over the decades grew Micro from a small manufacturer of metal stampings to a global provider of medical device contract manufacturing services.
Micro’s specialties include precision metal tube fabrication, as well as assembly services, metal injection molding, ceramic injection molding, plastic insert and injection molding, laser cutting, and welding and marking.
The company is presently expanding to support robotic surgery systems, a hot area in the medtech space.
