MICRO has opened its state-of-the-art 15,000-sq-ft R&D center inside the company’s recently purchased 50,000-sq-ft building in Somerset, NJ. The R&D Center was dedicated in honor of company Chairman Frank Semcer Sr. (shown above at center) to recognize his 50 years of leadership, the company reported in a news release. Semcer Sr. began with MICRO in 1969 (working under his father) and has helped grow MICRO from a small manufacturer of metal stampings to a global provider of medical device contract manufacturing services.
Semcer Sr. is a member of The New Jersey Technology & Manufacturing Association, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and the American Society of Quality Control. He serves on the Board of Stevens Institute of Technology, receiving the Harold R. Fee ’20 Alumni Achievement Award in 1985 and the Stevens Honor Award in Innovation and Entrepreneurship in 2010.
MICRO's new building will also serve as the company's headquarters, enabling it to optimize manufacturing space in its other two locations next door. The company stated that its expansion reinforces its mission to provide “Manufacturing Solutions For Life.”
In addition to providing innovative solutions to the medical device industry, MICRO has recently expanded into the robotic-assisted surgery market.
