Precision parts producer Enplas Corp. of Japan has acquired injection molder PolyLinks Inc. for an undisclosed price, a combination that stages PolyLinks to be a lead manufacturing resource to the Life Science industry. This collaboration also provides Enplas with an established foothold in North America from which to expand its medical and biotech
business segment.

Asheville, N.C.-based PolyLinks is an injection molding and assembly manufacturer serving the biotech and medical industries. The firm operates a 45,000-square-foot facility with three cleanrooms. PolyLinks also builds its own tooling in-house.

Enplas made the purchase through its Enplas America Inc. unit. The firm operates in 15 countries and has annual sales of $400 million. Enplas provides mold building, high precision plastics manufacturing and research and development to the automotive, semiconductor, optical device, and biotechnology industries. Enplas already operates an injection molding plant in Marietta, Ga., which provides ultra-high precision gears to automotive, office automation, and other industries.

Together, Enplas and PolyLinks are excited to better serve the life science industry with their joined and expanded capabilities.
