Prodways Group, specialized in industrial 3D printing, just acquired 75% stake in Interson-Protac, a French company that makes ear tips for hearing aids and customised hearing protectors.

Interson-Protac brings innovation in the sector of audiology. Indeed, for more than 40 years, the company has been manufacturing ear tips for custom hearing protectors and hearing aids.

Interson-Protac currently uses 3D printing for 20% of its production, and its integration into Prodways Group will give it access to the most high-performance technologies so it can increase this proportion. Like the prostheses developed by Prodways Group in the dental and podiatry sectors, audiology is being revolutionised by 3D printing.

For all these medical applications, additive manufacturing is replacing long, costly manual customisation processes while offering better precision and higher-quality prostheses. This acquisition strengthens the medical segment, which is a major growth area in the Products division.

The integration into Prodways Group will give Interson-Protac an opportunity to further migrate toward 3D printing and accelerate its expansion, particularly on the buoyant market of customised hearing protection. The transaction is expected to be finalised within a month.
