Medical 3D Printing Start-up 3D MEDLAB becomes a Marle Group company

Marle Group, a medical device manufacturer has acquired 3D MEDLAB a start-up that delivers 3D printed medical devices across the ortho, spine, trauma, and cardio markets.

Headquartered in France, both companies will strengthen their presence in the medical industry.

For those who do not know, Marle Group now has 7 production facilities exclusively focused on orthopedic implant manufacturing for OEM’s globally while 3D MEDLAB has dedicated its core business to additive manufacturing in the medical device sector.

We first discovered the start-up through a collaboration with Lindewhere they explored how atmospheric conditions can be optimized for the production of 3D Printed lattice structures.

The company specializes in engineering, design and development, and production of 3D printed metal implants, polymer implants and components. It works with OEM’s during initial stage prototypes, FDA approvals and large volume production.

According to 3D MEDLAB, this acquisition expands Marle Group’s contract manufacturing offering with their new additive manufacturing solution that creates a total end-to-end solution. The solution supports research and innovation, product development, prototyping, various manufacturing platforms (additive, forging, casting, or subtractive machining), inspection and quality, complete packaging, and delivery of complex finished product.

Marle Group will continue to make strategic acquisitions and partnerships to expand its value-added portfolio for its OEM customers.

Antonio Gil, President and Heimo Wabusseg, CEO, Marle Group, “We are extremely excited about this strategic alliance and the opportunity to combine our forging, casting, and machining expertise with a proven 3D implant company. We had been looking to join forces with a partner to execute our growth strategy in the United States and provide our Marle Group customers with the latest in implant technology. This merger with 3D MEDLAB was a perfect fit for the Marle Team and we are confident that we will increase market share in 2021 and beyond.”

Gaël Volpi, CEO and Founder, 3D MEDLAB, This combination of our innovative cultures will allow us to expand and stretch our strategic value to our customers globally by fully encompassing the diverse scope of manufacturing techniques and platforms between 7 facilities. Marle also has an excellent reputation in the med device space for collaboration with their customers and speed to market which aligns with our core values at 3D MEDLAB. Joining the Marle Group enables our company to expand exposure to our innovations, keep our R&D value and accelerate our growth as part of a leading global medical device contract manufacturer focused on providing orthopedic implant and cardiovascular solutions to OEM’s.”
