Alpha Sintered Metals consolidates new acquisitions with company rebrand

December 18, 2017

Alpha Precision Group (APG), St Mary’s, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the consolidation of its brands – Alpha Sintered Metals (ASM), Precision Compacted Components (PCC) and Precision Made Products (PMP) – to form Alpha Precision Group.

ASM manufactures Powder Metallurgy and metal injection moulded components for the automotive, small engine, commercial vehicle, agricultural equipment and recreational vehicle markets. This year, the company marks its 50th anniversary, with a primary manufacturing focus on products supporting increased fuel economy, improved emissions and enhanced engine performance.

In 2016, O2 Investment Partners and Alpha Sintered Metals formed the holding company, called Alpha Precision Group, to facilitate acquisitions in support of ASM’s long-term, strategic growth plan. The subsequent investments in Precision Made Products and Precision Compacted Components provide new technology, expanded capabilities and additional opportunities for ASM in growth markets.

Using PCC’s variable cam timing segment, ASM was able to enhance its focus on products supporting increased fuel economy, while PMP’s focus on the medical device, aerospace and firearms markets made it possible for ASM’s Metal Injection Moulding operations to target the medical device market.

JoAnne Ryan, APG CEO, stated, “The selective integration of the three companies has progressed exceptionally well and reached the point where brand consolidation is appropriate. The single brand identity reflects the full capabilities and strengths of the combined company and presents a unified approach to the market.”

Going forward, the group will operate through two primary divisions, APG Sintered Metals and APG Metal Injection Molding. The APG Sintered Metals division will consist of the powder metal operations of Alpha Sintered Metals and Precision Compacted Components. APG Metal Injection Molding will take on the MIM operations of Alpha Sintered Metals and Precision Made Products.

According to APG, the rebranding effort includes the new brand identity, company logo, new building signage and a consolidated website currently under construction.
