Integer Holdings Corporation (NYSE:ITGR), a leading medical device outsource manufacturer, has entered into an agreement to sell its Advanced Surgical and Orthopedics product lines to MedPlast, LLC, a leading global services provider to the medical device industry, for $600 million in cash. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including U.S. and foreign antitrust clearances.

Integer’s AS&O capabilities will bolster MedPlast’s portfolio of manufacturing solutions and transform MedPlast into one of the world’s leading outsourced contract manufacturers of medical devices. In addition to expanding MedPlast’s offering into a broad range of metals manufacturing capabilities, including machining, stamping, coating and metal forming, it will further strengthen MedPlast’s front-end design, development and prototyping services. Once complete, the acquisition will double MedPlast’s size to nearly $1 billion in sales, as well as its global footprint, with an expanded presence in Europe. MedPlast will employ nearly 6,000 engineers, technicians and assembly workers at manufacturing facilities across Asia, Central America, Europe and the United States.
