FATHOM has acquired GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services, LLC, a metal additive manufacturing services provider. 

Midwest Composite Technologies acquired FATHOM and ICOMold in 2019. With the GPI acquisition all four companies will be moving forward under the FATHOM brand. The combined company is positioned for growth as a leading privately held digital manufacturing company in the United States, and now offers expanded manufacturing capabilities to all customers.

Founded in 2007 as a metal additive manufacturing services provider, GPI offers Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) additive manufacturing and CNC machining services, producing metal parts with complex geometries for on-demand manufacturing applications. Utilizing a variety of metals, including aluminum, stainless steel, tool steel, titanium, inconel and cobalt chrome, GPI works with Fortune 500 companies across medical, aerospace & defense, R&D and industrial end markets. The company holds ISO 9001, ISO 13485, and AS9100D certifications and is ITAR registered.

“GPI's ability to leverage metal additive manufacturing accelerates both design cycles and time to market and further enhances FATHOM's existing metal additive capabilities and our unique customer value proposition,” says Ryan Martin, chief executive officer of FATHOM.

“Digital Manufacturing is now fundamental to the successful development of hardware solutions,” says Rich Stump, co-founder and CCO of FATHOM. “Our four legacy companies each held important industry positions. Our new combined entity, Fathom, is uniquely poised to lead the digital manufacturing revolution and with the addition of GPI, our customers will have access to further additive manufacturing capabilities.”

“This partnership with FATHOM will further benefit our valued customers through an enhanced suite of on-demand manufacturing capabilities accompanied by the same excellent customer service, quality and metallurgical expertise for which we're known,” says Scott Galloway, founder and CEO of GPI.
