Sign of the times

A sign in front of the building at Eastgate Industrial Park announced the completion of the acquisition of IMTEC Corp. by 3M, a St. Paul, Minn., company. Similar banners have gone up at IMTEC’s facilities in Ardmore, Okla., and Boulder, Colo.

“It’s pretty much business as usual,” said Hugo Hinojosa, vice president of operations Friday. “You can already start to feel the excitement of it.”

IMTEC is a stand-alone division within the 3M system and Hinojosa said, “We’re doing fine and things are forging ahead. But of course we want to explore ways the 3M family can start helping us and how we can enhance what we are doing.

IMTEC, formed from a merger with the Los Alamos start-up HYTEC is a manufacturer of dental implants and cone beam computed tomography scanning equipment for dental and radiology.

3M has $24 billion in annual sales and 75,000 employees in more than 60 countries worldwide.
