Micro-Molding, Expanded Cleanroom, New Technologies and Continued High-Tech Processing are in the Future for MicroTech Southwest. Site to become a Westfall Technik “Center of Excellence.”
Tempe, Arizona – March 20th, 2019 – MicroTech Southwest Inc. (“MTSW”, or “MicroTech”) is the latest in a string of acquisitions made by Westfall Technik Inc. MTSW focuses exclusively on the medical and consumer products spaces, serving only blue-chip OEMs in those industries. Steve Kraxberger, CEO and founder of MTSW, started the company on the simple premise of providing innovative solutions and excellent service at a fair price. According to Steve, “When the time came to sell, I wanted to find a buyer who would continue MTSW’s strong tradition of customer service. I am sure that Westfall Technik is the right group to do this.”
MTSW grew dramatically with the addition of industry veteran Brett Black in 2014. The company increased their high-volume technical parts production through innovative manufacturing concepts. “We found new ways to increase output and ensure quality at a fair price which allowed us to become a leader in high-tech parts”, said Brett.
The MicroTech management team will be staying on but Steve Kraxberger will be retiring after a transition period. “It is important that our associates know that their future is secure and that the modernization plans will offer them new opportunities to grow”, according to both Westfall and MicroTech management.
Westfall Technik Expansion Plans
MicroTech currently operates 24 machines from 28 to 350 tons primarily in the medical and consumer product space. The facility is ISO 9001 and 13485 certified but does not currently have clean room production. “That is going to change quickly” according to Rick Shaffer, Managing Director for the Western Region. Modernization plans include an ISO 8 cleanroom, industry 4.0 material handling, infrastructure modernization and productivity improvements. The 58,000 square foot site will also become the center of excellence for Westfall Technik in the Western region.
