Majestic Metals (www.majesticmetals.com) will combine with Incodema, Newcut, and recently acquired Dahlquist Machine to form what CORE Industrial Partners called a “leading nationwide precision manufacturing services provider aligned with Industry 4.0 trends for on-demand production across sheet metal fabrication, CNC machining, and photochemical etching.” The combined entity offers on-demand manufacturing and finishing capabilities for customers in such end markets as medical, electronics, aerospace and defense, and industrial, among others.
“Majestic Metals has developed a strong reputation as a highly experienced manufacturer with the ability to serve as a thought and design partner, utilizing in-depth industry knowledge to support both the product development and production needs of its customers,” said CORE Partner Matthew Puglisi, in the release. “We’re pleased to add Majestic Metals to Incodema and will continue to pursue highly complementary acquisitions to build out our nationwide platform.”
Majestic Metal’s end-to-end services and heavy investments in automation and “lights out” manufacturing are said to facilitate quick turnaround times for low-to-mid volume, complex precision sheet metal components. The company serves diversified end markets, including the analytical instruments, medical, aerospace and defense, electronics, and industrial sectors.
“On behalf of my brothers, Dave and Doug, and the full Majestic Metals team, we’re excited to partner with CORE and Incodema,” said Chip Roberts, president of Majestic Metals, in the release. “For more than 40 years, Majestic Metals has established its position as a customer-focused provider of premium sheet metal products and engineering services.

Carey Chen, CEO of Incodema, called Majestic Metals “a natural fit” for Incodema.
“They have similar precision metal fabrication capabilities, including cutting, forming, and welding, but at a larger part scale,” Chen said in the release. “Furthermore, Majestic Metals brings incremental abilities to the group, including state-of-the-art automation, powder coating, and screen printing. I look forward to working closely with the Roberts brothers and the Majestic Metals team in the future.”
