AM Chronicle Editor


ADDMAN Engineering (“ADDMAN”) announced that it had acquired Dinsmore & Associates, Inc. (“Dinsmore”, or “Company”), an Irvine, California-based provider of polymer 3D printing services, to its manufacturing solutions network.

The addition of Dinsmore broadens ADDMAN’s polymer production capability and is highly complementary to its existing additive and traditional manufacturing services.

Founded in 2002, Dinsmore is one of the pioneers of additive manufacturing technology in the United States known for its engineering-focused, value-added go-to-market approach, rapid manufacturing competences and quality. Dinsmore supports product design and development, prototyping and low-volume production for customers with a focus in medical applications. The company operates over 35 additive machines using leading technologies such as MJF, PolyJet, DLS, DLP, SLA, FFF and FDM, and can turn around production as quickly as under 5 days.

Joe Calmese, CEO of ADDMAN, states “This announcement marks the expansion of ADDMAN’s ability to support medical industry partners. We are planning for significant investment and growth in this arena going forward, and Dinsmore will serve as a core part of this strategy…By joining forces with Dinsmore, we now have one of the largest rosters of AMUG-awarded DINOs under one roof.” The Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) awards Distinguished Innovator Operators Awards (DINO) honors top leaders in the additive field. ADDMAN’s five DINOs include: Dr. Youping GaoBob MarkleyJay DinsmoreBill Braune, and Jason Lopes.

Jay Dinsmore, Founder and CEO of Dinsmore, adds “ADDMAN operates with a level of integrity and understanding of additive that matches the high value proposition that is synonymous with the Dinsmore brand. I’m happy to be a driving force in expanding their polymer business…Now that we are a part of the ADDMAN network, we can deliver a suite of new services, such as injection molding, CNC machining, metal additive manufacturing, and ISO 13485 cleanroom molded parts. This move extends our capacity to support customers through their complete product lifecycle.”

Sunny Li, Partner at American Industrial Partners, commented “AIP views additive manufacturing as one of the most impactful and disruptive technologies within the industrial economy. The acquisition of Dinsmore puts us one step closer to our vision of creating an additive-enabled, vertically integrated, and engineering-focused industrial technology business.”

Dinsmore is ADDMAN’s fifth acquisition over the past 24 months.

Fredrikson & Byron served as legal counsel to ADDMAN in this transaction.
