Ecrimesa Group, based in Santander, Spain, has announced that it will be opening a new Metal Injection Moulding facility in the USA. Operating with a new brand, Mimecri USA LLC, the 2,300 m2 facility will be located in Thomasville, Georgia, USA. This announcement follows the company’s strong recent growth trajectory, coming after the expansion of the company’s MIM operations in Spain.

Mimecrisa, the Group’s Spain-based Metal Injection Moulding business, is one of the Europe’s largest and oldest MIM operations. Mimecrisa was the first MIM producer in the world to install a continuous debinding and sintering furnace in the 1990s and today the company is recognised in particular for its ability to produce components that push at the upper limits of MIM’s size range.

Through Mimecri USA, the Ecrimesa Group will focus on serving US customers and further expanding its presence in the region. The Thomasville facility is expected to be fully operational in summer 2023.

Eduardo Valenzuela, Head of International Market, Ecrimesa, stated, “We are excited about this wonderful project, a great milestone for our company.”
