Dynacast becomes Form Technologies, new OptiMIM Metal Injection Moulding brand launched
January 9, 2018
Dynacast International Inc., headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, recently announced that Dynacast and its associated brands has become a family of brands under a newly formed entity called Form Technologies. The new company will combine three precision component manufacturers, which are all regarded as leaders in their respective market segments: Dynacast for precision engineered die cast components, Signicast for investment casting and prototyping and OptiMIM, the company’s new brand for Metal Injection Moulding.
Under Form Technologies, the companies will undergo a brand redesign for consistency across the platform. However, each company will maintain its own identity and continue with business as usual. Form Technologies will be led by Simon Newman, Dynacast’s Chairman and CEO, who stated, “As we continue to make strategic acquisitions that add processes and capabilities to our portfolio of companies, it became evident that we needed a larger, more inclusive brand that allowed us to expand our identity beyond a specific metal or process.”
“With Form Technologies, we are better positioned for future acquisitions that fall within our same strategic vision of becoming the leading global manufacturer of precision components,” he concluded. Dynacast first announced that it had developed its own variant of the MIM process in 2013. This was followed in 2014 with the acquisition of US MIM producer Kinetics Climax, Inc.
