Approved Sheet Metal, a sheet metal fabrication company based in Hudson, has acquired Nashua Fabrication Inc., a business that the company says will expand their growing list of services and capabilities. All 10 employees from Nashua Fabrication will join the Approved Sheet Metal Team, which now totals 36 employees.
This acquisition gives Approved Sheet Metal the ability to fabricate, polish, grind, and finish show-quality polished tubular stainless steel parts, with a focus on pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. In addition to these new capabilities, Approved Sheet Metal has also purchased and installed an AMADA 3kW ENSIS 3015 RI Fiber Laser, technology the company says is the most advanced on the market. In addition, the company recently brought on a third shift to meet increased production demands.
Approved Sheet Metal has relocated to Nashua Fabrication’s facility in Hudson. The combined company is fully operational in its new building and will maintain ITAR certification and ISO 9001 compliance throughout the entire transition period.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to work with a new customer base and continue to support our current customers in growing their businesses,” said Nick Mercier, owner of Approved Sheet Metal. “We do a lot of business in Massachusetts, so this new facility is the perfect geographic location for us to expand our business while meeting the needs of our current valued customers. It’s also a growing hub for highly qualified machining talent.”
In addition to Approved Sheet Metal, Mercier owns Macy Industries in Hooksett, a custom metal fabrication company founded by his father, and LAD Welding in Concord, another custom welding and metal fabrication company. Mercier says he wants to continue growing complementary businesses in different segments of metal fabrication.
Mercier says he is dedicated to building a positive, family-like culture that empowers employees to continue learning and advancing their skills.
“I love creating jobs in New Hampshire and helping new people enter the manufacturing trades,” said Mercier, who employs nearly 130 people across his companies. “My goal is to continue growing businesses with employee-focused cultures to best serve our customers in New England and beyond.”
