Operose Manufacturing acquires Minn. firm

FREDERICK — Operose Manufacturing Inc., a Frederick machining service and technology provider, has acquired Minnesota-based 3-D CNC Inc., which provides manufacturing services to the computer, medical, electronic, aerospace and industrial equipment industries.

Terms of the acquisition, which is Operose’s first, were not disclosed.

“One of our goals is to grow and this (acquisition) helps us get where we want to be a lot faster,” president Tyler Stilson said.

Operose, founded in 2007, has seven employees in its Colorado operation and — following the 3-D CNC acquisition — about 30 employees in Minnesota. The acquisition is not expected to affect staffing levels at either site.

Stilson said the company intends to acquire other complementary companies in the coming years.
