Prototal Industries, Europe’s largest provider of additive manufacturing, injection moulding, vacuum casting, and aluminium tooling, has acquired CA Models, an additive manufacturing specialist based in Stirling, Scotland.

The acquisition reinforces Prototal Industries' market position in the UK, adds metal additive manufacturing to group offering and further enhances its general capabilities in delivering innovative manufacturing solutions.

The acquisition of CA Models marks a significant milestone in Prototal Industries' growth strategy, demonstrating its commitment to expanding its presence and offerings to the manufacturing industry in the UK.

The addition of CA Models to the group also adds important expert competence and capacity to the already established Prototal UK operations, located in Newbury.

The acquisition of CA Models brings complementary strengths, expertise, and capabilities to Prototal Industries. It enables Prototal to offer a broader range of services and solutions, including metal additive manufacturing, 5-axis CNC machining, CNC turning, EDM wire erosion, CMM inspection, 3D scanning and a vast range of polymer additive manufacturing such as SLA and SLS, requiring highly intricate model making skills.

"We are thrilled to welcome CA Models into Prototal Industries. This strategic move aligns with our vision for growth and innovation and will strengthen our capabilities for production volumes with additive manufacturing.

"We are confident that the integration of our teams will be successful and further strengthen our position as the preferred production partner in Europe and the UK”, said Jan Löfving, CEO, Prototal Industries.

“We are delighted to join the Prototal Industries family and are excited to contribute our skills and expertise to expand on the wide range of technology the group already has," said Gregory Campbell, operations director of CA Models.

"With our strong experience in metal additive manufacturing and precision CNC machining, Prototal Industries can now offer its customers an even wider range of component manufacturing solutions."

The acquisition was completed on 1 February and Prototal Industries and CA Models are now working at full speed to secure a smooth and effective integration of the new team.

Collectively, CA Models and the Prototal UK team will have an expanded market presence, enabling Prototal to reach a wider audience and serve customers more effectively and efficiently across the UK.
