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.
