Micro, a family-owned business for nearly 75 years located in Somerset, announced the opening of its state-of-the-art 15,000-square-foot R&D center inside its recently purchased 50,000-square-foot building at 130 Belmont Drive.
This building will also serve as Micro’s headquarters, allowing the company to optimize manufacturing space in their other two locations in Somerset.
Micro provides innovative solutions to the medical device industry and is now expanding into the robotic-assisted surgery market. This expansion reinforces the company’s vision “to help our customers save lives” by fulfilling its mission to provide “manufacturing solutions for life.”
The R&D Center was dedicated in honor of company chairman Frank Semcer Sr., to recognize his 50 years of leadership. He began with Micro in 1969 under the auspices of his father. Manufacturing has always been a natural fit for Semcer’s interests and passions, which have enabled him to grow Micro from a small manufacturer of metal stampings to a leading global provider of medical device contract manufacturing services.
Semcer 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 the Stevens Institute of Technology, received the Harold R. Fee ’20 Alumni Achievement Award in 1985 and the Stevens Honor Award in Innovation and Entrepreneurship in 2010.
