ARC Group Worldwide, Inc.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

NOTE 1 – Nature of Operations and Basis of Presentation

 

Nature of Operations

 

ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (the “Company” or “ARC”) is a global advanced manufacturer offering a full suite of products and services to our customers, with specific expertise in metal injection molding (“MIM”) and metal 3D printing (also referred to herein as additive manufacturing).  To further advance and support these core capabilities, the Company also offers complementary services associated with: (i) precision metal stamping; (ii) traditional and clean room plastic injection molding; and (iii) advanced rapid and conformal tooling.  Through its diverse product offering, the Company provides its customers with a holistic prototyping and full-run production solution for both precision metal and plastic fabrication.  The Company further differentiates itself from its competitors by providing innovative, custom capabilities, which improve high-precision manufacturing efficiency and speed-to-market for its customers.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Company’s fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30, and the quarters for interim reporting consist of thirteen weeks; therefore, the quarter end will not always coincide with the date of the calendar month-end.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial statements and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments consisting of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position and results of operations.  Interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year.  The consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2017, was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date, but does not include all disclosures including notes required by GAAP.  As such, this quarterly report should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017.  The Company follows the same accounting policies for preparing quarterly and annual reports.    

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the amounts of ARC and its controlled subsidiaries.  All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. 

 

NOTE 2 – Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Due to the inherent uncertainties in making estimates, actual results could differ from those estimates and such differences may be material to the consolidated financial statements.

6


 

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

 

For each of the quarters ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, there were no material differences between net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss).

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases: Topic 842 (“ASU 2016-02”), to supersede nearly all existing lease guidance under GAAP.  ASU 2016-02 requires the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet by lessees for those leases currently classified as operating leases.  ASU 2016-02 also requires qualitative disclosures along with specific quantitative disclosures and is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years.  Early application is permitted.  Entities are required to apply the amendments at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach.  The Company is evaluating the requirements of this guidance and has not yet determined the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows; however, the Company’s current operating lease commitments are disclosed in Note 13, Commitments and Contingencies, of the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606 (“ASU 2014-09”), to supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP.  The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services.  ASU 2014-09 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than required under existing GAAP including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation.  In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14 which defers the effective date for one year beyond the originally specified effective date.  ASU 2014-09 is effective in the Company’s first quarter of fiscal 2019 and may transition to the standard using either the full retrospective approach or retrospectively with a cumulative effect of initially applying the amendments recognized at the date of initial application.  The Company has completed its initial assessment of the effect of adoption.  Based on this initial assessment, the majority of the Company’s revenues will not be affected upon adoption.  The Company is still analyzing the disclosure requirements of this new standard.

 

NOTE 3 – Divestitures

 

General Flange & Forge LLC (“GF&F”)

 

On September 15, 2017, the Company sold substantially all of the assets of GF&F to GFFC Holdings, LLC (“GFFC”) for $3.0 million in cash.  GFFC is owned, in part, by Quadrant Management Inc., which is an affiliate of the Company.  The sale of GF&F is therefore a related party transaction.  The GF&F sale was made pursuant to an industry-wide auction undertaken on behalf of the Company by a registered investment banking organization that managed the sale process with prospective bidders.  GFFC entered into the bidding for the GF&F assets only after the first rounds of the auction indicated uncertainty both in respect to the timing for closing any prospective sale and achieving the Company’s valuation objectives.  Mr. Alan Quasha, CEO of Quadrant Management Inc. and Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors, recused himself from any deliberations or voting by the Board of Directors in respect of the sale of the GF&F assets to GFFC.  The Board of Directors appointed a special committee consisting solely of independent directors to oversee and negotiate the sale process.  The special committee engaged its own independent legal counsel to advise the special committee in respect of the drafting of the asset sale agreement and ancillary transaction documents in accordance with customary terms and conditions for transactions of this type.  In this manner, the special committee was able to conclude that the sale price and the terms and conditions for the transaction were superior to any other offers, as well as fair and reasonable to the Company and its shareholders.

Senior Credit Agreement

 

On September 29, 2016, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries, entered into a new senior asset-based lending credit agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A. (the “Senior ABL Credit Facility”); subsequently the Company entered into amendments one through four.

 

The Senior ABL Credit Facility provides the Company with the following extensions of credit and loans: (1) a Revolving Commitment in the principal amount of $25.0 million (the “Revolving Loan”) and (2) a mortgage-based Term Loan Commitment in the principal amount of $17.5 million (the “Term Loan”).  The loans under the Senior ABL Credit Facility are secured by liens on substantially all domestic assets of the Company and guaranteed by the Company’s domestic subsidiaries who are not borrowers under the Senior ABL Credit Facility.

 

The aggregate amount of revolving loans permitted under the Senior ABL Credit Facility may not exceed a borrowing base consisting of: (i) the sum of 85% of certain eligible accounts receivable, plus (ii) the lesser of 65% of the value of

10


 

certain eligible inventory and 85% of the net orderly liquidation value of certain eligible inventory, plus (iii) an amount not to exceed $4.2 million, which amount will be adjusted based on the face amount of certain letters of credit issued to Citizens Bank, N.A. in connection with certain operating leases and capitalized leases, minus (iv) reserves for any amounts which the lender deems necessary or appropriate.

 

Borrowings under the Senior ABL Credit Facility may be made as Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Rate Loans.  The Base Rate loans will bear interest at the fluctuating rate per annum equal to (i) the highest of (a) the Federal Funds Rate plus 1/2 of 1.00%, (b) Citizens own prime rate; and (c) the adjusted Eurodollar rate on such day for an interest period of one (1) month plus 1.00%; and (ii) plus the Applicable Rate, as described below.  Eurodollar Rate Loans will bear interest at the rate per annum equal to (i) the ICE Benchmark Administration LIBOR Rate; plus (ii) the Applicable Rate.  The “Applicable Rate” will be (a) 2.50% with respect to Base Rate Loans that are Term Loans and 3.50% with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans that are Term Loans, and (b) 2.50% with respect to Base Rate Loans that are Revolving Loans and 3.50% with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans that are Revolving Loans, in each case until December 31, 2016, and thereafter the Applicable Rate will be adjusted quarterly, responsive to the Company’s Quarterly Average Availability Percentage, ranging from 1.25% to 1.75% with respect to Base Rate Loans that are Revolving Loans and from 2.25% to 2.75% with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans that are Revolving Loans.  In addition to interest payments on the Senior ABL Credit Facility loans, the Company will pay commitment fees to the lender of 0.375% per quarter on undrawn Revolving Loans.  The Company will also pay other customary fees and reimbursements of costs and disbursements to the lender.

 

The Maturity Date with respect to the Revolving Loan and the Term Loan is August 11, 2019, provided, however, upon repayment of Company subordinated indebtedness the maturity date will automatically extend to five years after the Closing Date for Revolving Loans and Revolving Commitments, and with respect to the Term Loans, the earlier of the date that is (i) ten years after the Closing Date and (ii) the maturity date of the Revolving Loans.  The Senior ABL Credit Facility contains certain mandatory prepayment provisions, including mandatory prepayments due in respect of sales of assets, sales of equity securities, events of default and other customary events, with exceptions for non-core business dispositions.

 

The Senior ABL Credit Facility contains customary covenants and negative covenants regarding operation of the Company’s business, including maintenance of certain financial ratios, as well as restrictions on dispositions of Company assets.

 

In connection with the Senior ABL Credit Facility, the Company and the Borrowers together with certain subsidiaries (collectively, the “Guarantors”), have entered into an Amended and Restated Guarantee and Collateral Agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A. dated as of September 29, 2016, which secures all of the loans and credits drawn from the Senior ABL Credit Facility by the Borrowers.  The security interests established under the Amended and Restated Guarantee and Collateral Agreement include senior secured liens on substantially all of the assets of the Guarantors.  The Guarantors have agreed to guarantee the unconditional payment and performance to the lender of all obligations of the Borrowers under the Senior ABL Credit Facility.

 

On September 21, 2017, the Company entered into a third amendment to the Senior ABL Credit Facility to amend the definition of Consolidated EBITDA.

 

On November 12, 2017, the Company entered into the Fourth Amendment to the Senior ABL Credit Facility (the “Fourth Amendment”).  The Fourth Amendment suspends the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio covenant through December 31, 2018.  The suspension of the fixed charge coverage ratio covenant is effective as of October 1, 2017.  The Fourth Amendment also adds a minimum revolving credit availability financial covenant.  The Company’s revolving credit availability under the Senior ABL Credit Facility exceeded the minimum requirements during the quarter.  The Fourth Amendment also permits the Company to make infusions of junior capital, which may consist of subordinated debt and/or equity issuances.  The junior capital infusions made under the Fourth Amendment will not be subject to mandatory prepayment of the Senior ABL Credit Facility, but subject to certain limitations in respect of outstanding subordinated indebtedness.  Under the terms of the Fourth Amendment, the initial infusion of junior capital in amount of not less than $5.0 million must be completed by the Company no later than January 31, 2018.  The minimum revolving credit availability covenant requires the Company to maintain the following availability:  (a) at least $1,250,000 in revolving credit availability until the earlier of (i) the initial closing of the infusion of $5.0 million in junior capital and (ii) January 31, 2018; and (b) thereafter, at least $3,500,000 in such revolving credit availability.  The Fourth Amendment also reduces the Line Cap (consisting of the lesser of the aggregate revolving credit commitment and the

11


 

borrowing base) in respect of certain prepayment obligations and conditions precedent to borrowing, by reducing the borrowing base by $1,250,000.  The Fourth Amendment contains customary representations and warranties regarding the status of the Company and compliance with all terms and conditions of the Senior ABL Credit Facility.

 

Prior Amended & Restated Credit Agreement

 

On September 29, 2016, the Company refinanced all of the existing long-term debt obligations with Citizens Bank, N.A. into the Senior ABL Credit Facility described above.  The Company accounted for the refinancing as an extinguishment of debt and wrote off $0.7 million of previously deferred financing fees.

 

Subordinated Term Loan Credit Agreement

 

On November 10, 2014, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a $20.0 million, five-year Subordinated Term Loan Credit Agreement (“Subordinated Loan Agreement”) with McLarty Capital Partners SBIC, L.P. (“McLarty”), which bears interest at 11% annually; subsequently the Company entered into amendments one through four.  Upon an event of default under the Subordinated Loan Agreement, the interest rate increases automatically by 2.00% annually.  The proceeds were used to repay certain outstanding loans under the Company’s previous credit facility. ARC’s Chairman is indirectly related to McLarty; therefore, the Board of Directors appointed a special committee consisting solely of independent directors to assure that the Subordinated Loan Agreement is fair and reasonable to the Company and its shareholders. 

 

The Subordinated Loan Agreement has been subordinated to the Senior ABL Credit Facility pursuant to a First Lien Subordination Agreement.  The Subordinated Loan Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, events of default, affirmative covenants, negative covenants, and prepayment terms that are similar to those contained in the Senior ABL Credit Facility described above.   

 

On September 22, 2017, the Company entered into a fourth amendment to the Subordinated Loan Agreement to amend the definition of Consolidated EBITDA and the Maximum Total Leverage Ratio.

 

As of October 1, 2017, the Company was in compliance with its debt covenants under the Subordinated Credit Facility.

 

Loan Contract

 

On March 23, 2016, AFT-Hungary Kft. (“AFT Hungary”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Loan Contract with Erste Bank Hungary Zrt. in an amount equal to €4.0 million (“Loan Contract”).  The initial funding of €4.0 million drawn on the Loan Contract occurred on March 31, 2016.  Approximately $3.0 million of the net proceeds from the Loan Contract were used to partially repay obligations outstanding under the Amended & Restated Credit Agreement, with the remaining net proceeds to be used for capital expenditures and other investments to facilitate the export of goods and services provided by AFT Hungary.

 

The loan matures on March 7, 2021, and bears interest at a fixed rate of 0.98% per annum.  The Company is required to make semi-annual principal payments in an amount equal to approximately €400,000 along with monthly interest payments.  The Loan Contract is secured by certain of AFT Hungary’s assets, including the real estate and selected machinery and equipment located in Retsag, Hungary.

NOTE 8 – Income Taxes

 

The income tax receivable was $0.6 million and $0.5 million at October 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017, respectively, which are included in other current assets.  The Company had unrecognized tax benefits for uncertain tax positions of $0.9 million and $1.0 million on October 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017, respectively, which are included in other long-term liabilities. 

 

NOTE 9 – Earnings Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period.  Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the diluted weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding during each period.  As a result of the Company’s net loss from continuing operations, for the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, approximately 146,634 and 134,927 shares, respectively were considered anti-dilutive and were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share.  

 

NOTE 10 – Share-Based Compensation

 

The Company’s share-based compensation arrangements include grants of stock options under the ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. 2015 Equity Incentive Plan and the 2016 ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. Equity Incentive Plan and the Employee Stock Purchase Plan.  The share-based compensation expense recognized during the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016 was $0.3 million and is included in selling, general and administrative expense.  As of October 1, 2017, there was $0.6 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to non-vested stock options, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.6 years.

 

NOTE 11 – Commitments and Contingencies

 

During the third quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company’s stamping operations located in Michigan experienced a wind-generated power disruption that temporarily halted production for several days and severely damaged key equipment.  The Company is insured for these business interruption and equipment repair costs and filed an insurance claim with its insurance provider.  The estimated ongoing loss of approximately $1.0 million is expected to be fully covered by insurance and $0.9 million was collected through the first quarter of fiscal 2018.  The remaining $0.1 million is recorded as in insurance claim receivable at October 1, 2017. 

 

The Company leases land, facilities, and equipment under various non-cancellable operating lease agreements expiring through 2022, which contain various renewal options.  The Company also leases equipment and a building under non-cancellable capital lease agreements expiring through 2024.  The capital leases have interest rates ranging from 3.0% to 6.3%.

 

From time to time, the Company is a party to various litigation matters incidental to the conduct of its business.  As of October 1, 2017, the Company is not presently a party to any legal proceedings, the resolution of which, management believes, would have a material adverse effect on its business, operating results, financial condition, or cash flows.

NOTE 12 – Segment Information

 

During fiscal 2017, the Company sold its non-core subsidiaries, Tekna Seal and ARC Wireless.  Subsequently, in September 2017, the Company sold its non-core subsidiary, GF&F, which comprised the Flanges and Fittings Group segment.  The completed divestiture of these non-core businesses, along with the growth in its 3D metal printing business, has changed the way in which management and its chief operating decision maker evaluate performance and allocate resources.  As a result, during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company revised its business segments, consistent with its management of the business and internal financial reporting structure.  Specifically, the Precision Components Group now includes the results of its plastic injection molding operations and its tooling product line, which were previously included within the 3DMT Group.  Results depicted in its 3DMT Group business unit now solely reflect those operations associated with metal 3D printing and associated services.  In addition, its precision metal stamping operations are now reported within the newly created Stamping Group, which were previously included in the Precision Components Group.

 

As a result of the above transactions, the Company will report three segments as part of continuing operations:  Precision Components Group, Stamping Group, and 3DMT Group.

 

·

The Precision Components Group companies provide highly engineered, precision metal components using processes consisting of metal injection molding. It also includes our tooling product line and plastic injection molding.  Industries served include aerospace, automotive, consumer durables, electronic devices, firearms and defense, and medical and dental devices.

 

·

The Stamping Group consists of our precision metal stamping operations.

 

·

The 3DMT Group consists of 3D Material Technologies, LLC (“3DMT”), our metal 3D printing and additive manufacturing operations.

 

The historical results of Tekna Seal, which were included in the Precision Components Group segment, and the historical results of the Flanges and Fittings Group segment have been reflected as discontinued operations.  Historical segment information has been restated.  Summarized segment information for the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016 is as follows (in thousands):

(“ARC,” “our,” “we,” or “us”) Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

 

The information contained in this Quarterly Report (this “Report”) may contain certain statements about ARC that are or may be “forward-looking statements,” that is, statements related to future, not past, events, including forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These statements are based on the current expectations of the management of ARC and are subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause our results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, factors detailed in our reports filed with the SEC, including further but not limited to those discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016.  In addition, these statements are based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change.  The forward-looking statements contained in this Report may include all other statements in this document other than historical facts.  Without limitation, any statements preceded or followed by, or that include the words “targets,” “plans,” “believes,” “expects,” “aims,” “intends,” “will,” “may,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “approximates,” “projects,” “seeks,” “sees,” “should,” “would,” “expect,” “positioned,” “strategy,” or words or terms of similar substance or derivative variation or the negative thereof, are forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements include statements relating to the following: (1) future capital expenditures, expenses, revenues, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, and future prospects; (2) business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of ARC; (3) the effects of government regulation on ARC’s business; and (4) our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions generally.

 

There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  Additional particular uncertainties that could cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in forward-looking statements include: risks associated with our international operations; significant movements in foreign currency exchange rates; changes in the general economy, as well as the cyclical nature of our markets; availability and cost of raw materials, parts and components used in our products; the competitive environment in the areas of our planned industrial activities; our ability to identify, finance, acquire and successfully integrate attractive acquisition targets; expected earnings of ARC; the amount of and our ability to estimate known and unknown liabilities; material disruption at any of our significant manufacturing facilities; the solvency of our insurers and the likelihood of their payment for losses; our ability to manage and grow our business and execution of our business and growth strategies; our ability and the ability our customers to access required capital at a reasonable costs; our ability to expand our business in our targeted markets; the level of capital investment and expenditures by our customers in our strategic markets; our financial performance; our ability to identify, address and remediate any material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting; our ability to achieve or maintain credit ratings and the impact on our funding costs and competitive position if we do not do so; and other risks.  Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statement.

 

Due to such uncertainties and risks, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.  ARC undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required.  Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be a forecast, projection or estimate of the future financial performance of ARC unless otherwise expressly stated.

Our business model is to accelerate the widespread adoption of MIM and AM, along with other key technologies, including automation, robotics, and production software in traditional manufacturing, thereby benefiting from the elimination of inefficiencies currently present in the global supply chain.  More specifically, the two key pillars of our business strategy are centered on the following areas:

 

·

Holistic Manufacturing Solution.  The metal and plastic fabrication industries are highly fragmented sectors with numerous single-solution providers.  Given the inefficiencies associated with working with these disjointed groups, many manufacturers seek to improve their supplier base by working with more scaled, holistic providers.  Our strategy is to facilitate the consolidation and streamlining of global supply chains by offering a holistic solution to our customers’ manufacturing needs.  In particular, ARC provides a “one-stop shop” solution to our customers by offering a spectrum of highly advanced products, processes, and services, thereby delivering highly-engineered precision components at efficient production yields.

·

Accelerating Speed-to-Market.  The traditional prototype-to-production process is often subject to lengthy bottlenecks and is characterized by inefficient price quoting delays, time-consuming tooling procedures, and outdated production methodologies.  To differentiate itself from competitors, ARC focuses on reducing inefficiencies in the development cycle by offering the seamless integration of a wide-variety of proprietary technologies in order to dramatically reduce the time and cost associated with new product development.  Specifically, the Company has developed rapid and instant online quoting solutions, rapid prototype solutions, short-run production services, in-house rapid and advanced conformal tooling, and rapid full production capabilities.

Separately, U.S. manufacturing has been rejuvenated as global wage disparities mitigate and traditional labor-intensive processes are displaced by technology.  These macroeconomic trends will aid in the adoption of our business strategy.

Our key fundamental strengths are built upon core capabilities, including:

·

Metal Injection Molding.  We are a large and well-respected MIM provider.  As a pioneer of MIM technology, and driven by our material science understanding, powder metallurgy experience, and established global facilities, we are one of the most advanced MIM operators in the marketplace.  ARC provides high-quality, complex, precise, net-shape metal components to market-leading companies in numerous sectors, including the medical and dental, firearm and defense, automotive, aerospace, consumer durable, and electronic device industries.  Further, our process is highly automated, utilizing advanced robotics and automation to ensure high levels of quality and efficiency.

 

·

Metal 3D Printing.  We offer a variety of 3D printing solutions, with an emphasis on metal 3D printing.  In general, given promising signs of growth and related barriers to entry, we believe the metal 3D printing sector is one of the more attractive segments of the overall additive manufacturing industry.  Furthermore, metal 3D printing, while a complex technology still in its early stages, shares several fundamental similarities with our MIM business, thereby helping to accelerate our research and development.  Separately, our metal 3D printing capabilities enable ARC to offer a variety of new services, including rapid prototyping, rapid tooling and short-run production, helping our customers improve their product speed-to-market.  Given our established customer base, diverse metallurgy background, and scalable injection molding capabilities, we believe we are well-positioned in the industrial metal 3D printing market.

 

·

Additional Complementary Metal and Plastic Fabrication Capabilities.  We offer a number of additional specialty metal and plastic fabrication capabilities that enable us to provide our customers with a full suite of custom-component products.  Our specialty capabilities include plastic injection molding (including medical clean room applications), precision stamping, magnesium injection molding and computer numerical control machining.
