BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 29, 2017–
Sverica Capital Management LLC (“Sverica”) today announced that portfolio company Resonetics has acquired Aduro Laser (“Aduro”). The investment marks Resonetics’ second acquisition following the original acquisition of Resonetics by Sverica in 2014.
Based in Davis, CA, Aduro is an emerging leader in laser processing of tubular components for the medical device industry, serving leading companies in structural heart, peripheral vascular and minimally invasive surgery markets. In just four years, Aduro has established an innovative business model and proprietary technology to shorten lead times dramatically, enabling customers to iterate rapidly and reduce time to market. With a relentless focus on efficiency and eliminating waste, the company also offers incredible value and makes broader adoption of interrupted spiral cut tubing economically viable. Resonetics will market the service as PRIME™ Laser Cut Tubing, a best-in-class solution for quick turn and high volume laser cut tubing used extensively in catheter delivery systems, Nitinol implants and single use instruments.
“We are very excited to partner with Grayson Beck and Demian Backs, who have created a disruptive business model in Aduro,” said Tom Burns, Resonetics CEO. “We share a similar culture with an emphasis on innovation, speed and customer satisfaction. Resonetics will expand capacity with a new facility, additional equipment and more engineering resources to keep lead times the best in the industry.”
“After more than 45 years of laser manufacturing and machine building experience, Demian and I knew we wanted to create something different,” added Grayson Beck, Co-founder and CEO of Aduro Laser. “Joining forces with Resonetics provides additional resources and synergies to provide solutions to our customers on a larger scale.”
Dave Finley, Managing Director at Sverica said, “We are excited to continue to build the capabilities of the premier pure-play laser micro-manufacturing company in the medical device manufacturing industry. Resonetics was acquired in 2014 as a single-location, polymer-focused laser processor of components. Less than three years later, we have entered the metals segment of the industry and service customers globally through six locations. Resonetics is a textbook example of what Sverica strives to do in lower-middle-market investing.”
