"Lenthor's advanced capabilities in flexible circuit design and manufacturing, and its leading position in high-value market segments make it a perfect complement to Fralock's core business," said Marc Haugen, CEO, Fralock Holdings. "We believe that Lenthor's expertise and strong executive team, as well as its strong strategic customer relationships especially in our overlapping market segments, makes Lenthor an excellent addition to our expanding engineered materials solutions platform."

Fralock's applications are used in a variety of ways that impact our lives, including equipment used to manufacture semiconductors, medical treatment, imaging and patient monitoring devices, and Defense applications, satellite and spacecraft components. This new acquisition will enable Fralock to expand its market position and to better serve its existing end markets from the products created by Lenthor.
