Chief Executive Officer of Prototek, Bill Gress, was reportedly quoted stating that the latest takeover of Cal-X signifies another great instance of the firm’s commitment to build a foremost rapid prototyping service provider. The company specializes in delivering the impossible and now plans to make the service available throughout the country. Cal-X rounds out the firm’s portfolio of abilities and services that puts the firm ahead of its rivals as the logical choice of rapid prototype providers, Gress further added.

Partner of CORE, Matthew Puglisi, reportedly said that Cal-X would complement the crucial strategic dimensions of Prototek across various domains including geography, customers, end markets, and technical capabilities.
