History

In February of 1971, William Wetzel founded Protomatic, Inc. after an economic slowdown in the space race. Utilizing his high-tech aerospace background and discerning the upcoming need for high-level prototyping services, he first began manufacturing many components for the automobile industry and laser technology applications. As the need for medical prototyping grew, Protomatic expanded to include prototyping and short-run production machining operation for the medical industry. Soon thereafter, Protomatic Medical emerged as a leader in the field of medical device machining.

With nearly four decades of operation under their belt, the team at Protomatic Medical offers superior in-house design support services, prototype manufacturing and medical device development. Current Vice President and General Manager Doug Wetzel, who joined the company in 1993, brings his expertise from an electrical engineering background.
