HARTLAND, Wis., Feb. 4, 2021 — (PRNewswire) —  Fathom Manufacturing announces the acquisition of Summit Tooling and Summit Plastics, a leading precision tooling and injection molding services provider specializing in small-to-medium prototype injection molds for the domestic market. This acquisition will greatly expand Fathom's domestic injection molding capabilities.

"Summit's focus on customers during the design, prototyping and low-volume production stages of a product's life cycle perfectly aligns with Fathom's unique customer value proposition.
