NASHUA, N.H.—Resonetics, a pioneer in micro manufacturing and a provider of contract manufacturing services to the life sciences industry, reported that it has acquired Distal Solutions, a company specializing in the design and development of catheter-based delivery systems and implants for interventional markets.
The Distal Solutions team, based in Westborough, Massachusetts and led by founder David Rezac, will be expanding and opening a new office at Resonetics’s San Diego site. Distal Solutions is Resonetics’s seventh acquisition in the past four years, Resonetics said in a release.
“We’ve gotten to know Dave and the team at Distal over the past year through a number of mutual customer projects and have witnessed the strong synergies between their product development talents and Resonetics’s extensive prototyping and manufacturing capabilities,” said Tom Burns, president and CEO of Resonetics, in the release. “Resonetics has invested significantly to offer a broad array of manufacturing technologies with industry-leading delivery times through our Lightspeed Application Development Labs. We’re excited to join forces with Distal Solutions to compress product development cycles further and help customers get their innovative product concepts to market sooner.”
Resonetics will create a new division focused on design, development, and finished device assembly. David Rezac, a 15-year veteran of the contract design and development industry, will lead the initiative, including expansion to California.
“Since founding Distal Solutions seven years ago, I’ve had the good fortune of working on compelling interventional technologies alongside passionate people and am excited to continue that journey as part of the Resonetics family,” Rezac said in the release. “We have an outstanding team that delivers consistent value to our customers by providing creative, flexible and attentive service. Joining forces with Resonetics will allow us to leverage our complementary offerings, resulting in even better outcomes for our customers. Adding dedicated design and development resources on the West Coast is a natural extension of our footprint, and the Distal team is very excited to collaborate more closely with Resonetics’s nitinol center of excellence in San Diego.”
