ATW Companies Announces Acquisition of Metalform Company

Metal Stamping

Pistol magazine technologies to enhance company's defense capabilities

WARWICK, R.I.--ATW Companies, a provider of engineered metal manufacturing solutions, announced earlier this year the acquisition of Metalform Company, a New Britain, Conn.-based gun magazine manufacturing firm, by A.T. Wall, ATW's precision stamping and tube drawing subsidiary. According to a press release from ATW Companies, the newly established team "will combine ATW's experienced, responsive engineering and fabrication team with Metalform's innovative gun magazine manufacturing capabilities." Its focus will be on "world class quality and delivery" to the firearms industry--from components to finished accessories.

"The acquisition of Metalform will enable us to expand our offering as a leading provider of engineered solutions in metal products for defense applications," said Peter C. Frost, president of ATW Companies, in a statement. "The technologies that will evolve out of ATW's metal manufacturing expertise and Metalform's defense market presence will take the combined companies to a new level of product offering and market penetration."

The acquisition of Metalform's deep-drawing, stamping, and pistol magazine fabrication capabilities supports ATW's vertical integration into the rapidly-growing firearms and defense industries. Among Metalform's top products are 38 caliber, 45 caliber, and 9 mm magazines, supplied to many top firearms industry companies.

Metalform joins what ATW Director of Business Development Tracy MacNeal called "a strong firearms and defense team with expertise in a variety of technologies, including precision CNC machining, metal injection molding (MIM), laser cutting, precision metal tubing, and stamping." ATW Companies combines the capabilities of A. T. Wall Company, of Warwick, R.I.; Judson A. Smith Company, located in Boyertown, Pa.; and Parmatech Corporation, with locations in East Providence, R.I., and Petaluma, California.
