Presque Isle, ME – Today, U.S. Senator Susan Collins visited Acme Monaco Corporation’s manufacturing plant in Presque Isle, which produces medical guidewires and orthodontic hardware. Senator Collins toured the factory floor and spoke with employees and members of the management team. Acme Monaco employs approximately 75 people in Presque Isle.
“Acme Monaco is proof that Maine’s manufacturing tradition is alive, well, and growing,” said Senator Collins. “I was delighted to visit this facility and speak with such dedicated employees, who work to produce high-quality products that are in demand by customers around the world.”
Acme Monaco is a worldwide manufacturer of metal formed products such as custom guidewires, archwires, medical grade springs, stamping, four-slide parts, and wire forms.
In 2015, Acme Monaco received funding through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) to help construct its current 16,300 square foot facility. The new facility consolidated two smaller manufacturing plants in Presque Isle and created 23 new jobs. As a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Collins has long supported these grant programs to help Maine businesses grow and create jobs.
