MICRO is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2020 and today, we look back on a completely changed landscape, where surgery is more efficient and safer than ever before and outcomes for patients have greatly improved.

-Brian Semcer, Micro

MICRO was founded 75 years ago in 1945 – and initially focused on manufacturing high-precision metal stampings. What started as a highly specialized focus over time evolved to become a full-service contract manufacturing organization (CMO) with expertise in prototyping and validation for full-scale production. Our modern manufacturing techniques and innovative engineering solutions help ensure consistent development and delivery of high-quality products for the customer.

Over the last 75 years, medical device manufacturing has experienced a dramatic evolution. Technological advances, including software, nanotechnology, and sensor technology, have significantly impacted the industry, and healthcare delivery, in countless ways.

Engineering techniques, materials, and manufacturing processes have evolved and improved over time in parallel, largely enabled by technology. Today, medical device manufacturers are using robotics, 3D printing, and materials science to produce new and improved parts and products that meet market, customer, and patient needs. The complexity and sophistication of the outputs have grown exponentially, as minimally invasive instruments and computer-enabled surgical tools become more automated, reproduceable, and portable.
