Peterborough, New Hampshire – MinebeaMitsumi Inc. has closed on the previously announced acquisition of C&A Tool Engineering, Inc. (C&A), a leading advanced manufacturing company offering high precision, technically complex parts across the medical, aerospace & defense, fuel system, and industrial end markets.

C&A provides customized solutions from design and planning to fabrication and final inspection to top OEM’s in their diverse end markets. In addition to custom components for the aerospace, fuel system, and industrial markets, C&A also manufactures surgical implants and instruments for spine, knee, and hip applications.

Their early adoption of additive manufacturing is a competitive advantage as their backlog in this area continues to grow. C&A is one of the first companies to have their direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) operational process permitted to support customer approved Food and Drug Administration (FDA) products.

Its manufacturing operations are certified to AS 9100, ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, and ISO 13485. The company also holds a Nadcap accreditation for Nonconventional Machining (EDM).

C&A Tool Engineering, Inc. is joining the NHBB/myonic Business Unit, which includes NHBB, myonic GmbH, and CEROBEAR GmbH. This Business Unit of the MinebeaMitsumi Group will now operate a total of eight manufacturing facilities: five in the United States, two in Germany, and one in Czech Republic.

The move increases the BU’s footprint in the aerospace and medical markets and expands its offering of machined components within its competencies of manufacturing to tight tolerances and extreme complexity.
