Updated: Intertech acquires Image Molding, readies for visit from U.S. Commerce Secretary

2013 is turning out to be a banner year for custom injection molder Intertech Plastics Inc. In April, Intertech announced the expansion of its capabilities and capacity at its Denver, CO, facility. On July 17, the company announced the acquisition of Image Molding, a Denver-based injection molding and contract manufacturing service provider to the medical devices industry. Image will join Intertech Plastics as the medical division of Intertech Plastics Inc., extending Intertech's offerings to OEMs in the consumer products, industrial and medical industries.

"We've been in negotiations with image for some time now," said Intertech Chairman and CEO Noel Ginsburg, "and the skills and capabilities that Image brings augments our capabilities tremendously, and are a great addition to the company."

The acquisition doubles Intertech's machine fleet, adding Image's 25 to its own 25. The 50 presses range from 33-160 tons, and the combined company will have 160,000-sq-ft of manufacturing space. Intertech believes the acquisition of Image Molding will make it one of the largest injection molding companies in the Rocky Mountain region. Image Molding also has in-house mold making capabilities, white room molding, a high-end metrology lab, and an ISO Class 7 certified clean room. The company is also ISO 9001:2008 and 13483:2003 certified for medical device manufacturing to provide a highly regulated part fulfillment environment.
