BERWYN, PA-Ametek Inc. has acquired Technical Manufacturing Corporation (TMC), a global high-performance vibration isolation systems and optical test benches company, whose products are used to isolate highly sensitive instruments for the microelectronics, life sciences, photonics and ultra-precision manufacturing industries. The privately held manufacturer, headquartered in Peabody, MA, has estimated annual sales of approximately $30 million.

"TMC is a great addition to our Electronic Instruments Group (EIG) and an excellent fit with our high-end analytical instruments businesses, including our ultra precision technologies and materials analysis divisions,” notes Ametek Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frank S. Hermance. “It further broadens our product offerings and expertise in ultra precision manufacturing.”

TMC joins AMETEK as part of the ultra precision technologies division of Ametek EIG.
