Additive Circuits Technologies Acquires Bench 2 Bench Technologies

Reading time ( words)

Additive Circuits Technologies LLC (ACT) announced it has acquired Bench 2 Bench Technologies, a Fullerton, CA-based high-performance manufacturer of flexible circuit boards for the medical device markets. 

The strategic acquisition of Bench 2 Bench will accelerate market access for the company’s proprietary additive technologies and provide ultra-high-density line capabilities to the flexible circuit’s market segment. The technology ultimately will allow for smaller, faster, and thinner circuits to meet increasing demands of the overall electronics market.

“Our acquisition of Bench 2 Bench will industrialize the manufacturing of high-definition flexible circuits, allowing these types of products to reach targeted customers in an accelerated manner.  ACT’s technology embedded into Bench 2 Bench flexible circuit products will provide a truly differentiated product that will address the next-generation technology needs of our customers,” said David Torp, ACT’s CEO. 

The acquisition of Bench 2 Bench is part of an aggressive business strategy to deploy technology into multiple market segments concurrently. The Bench 2 Bench acquisition follows the 2020 acquisition of Winonics, a rigid printed circuit board fabricator for the aerospace and avionics markets. These acquisitions have served to establish new technology platforms for exploiting the company’s proprietary additive manufacturing technologies and to gain market access and extend product offerings within the electronics manufacturing sector.

The capabilities of the combined organizations will create a company with great strengths across a range of technology platforms. The combination of Bench 2 Bench’s expertise in flexible circuits broadens ACT’s reach into new market segments while extending product offerings, services, and capacity of the Company’s current rigid circuit board manufacturing facility at Winonics. 

“We are incredibly excited to join ACT and Winonics, the synergy between the three organizations makes for a very powerful combination,” added Ira Rosenberg, General Manager, Bench 2 Bench Technologies. “We have a shared value in innovation that I am confident will lead to greater profitability and perhaps transformative breakthroughs in electronics manufacturing.”
