Thin Film Metal Parts has a new address, but the Eagle Electronics LLC subsidiary is still in the same northwest Colorado Springs building.
The company — which produces encoders, radio-frequency shields, electroformed mesh and other metal, glass and Mylar parts for the electronics, aerospace and medical industries — shared space until early February with former corporate sibling Photo Stencil.
After Boulder-based Kachi Partners bought Photo Stencil in June, Thin Metal Parts had to divide the space and operations the two companies shared at 4725 Centennial Blvd.The building was remodeled to separate the two companies and give each an entrance.
As a result, Thin Metal Parts is now located at 4733 Centennial Blvd. and has nearly doubled its space to give the company its own clean room and to accommodate additional support staff for accounting, information technology and other duties.
Thin Metal Parts now employs about 35 people, up from 25 before the split, and has acquired several new pieces of state-of-the-art equipment that will allow the company to expand its product line, said Craig Spitzfaden president of Thin Metal Parts.
