WATERTOWN, S.D., Jan. 8, 2021 – Spartronics LLC, a contract manufacturer of complex electronic and electromechanical devices for commercial aerospace, defense, space, instrumentation and control, life sciences and medical device applications, is pleased to announce it has completed the acquisition of Primus Technologies Corp. as of Dec. 31, 2020.

“We look forward to working together with the proven team at Primus to grow Spartronics with an expanded footprint and broader capabilities. The Primus campus in Williamsport is well- suited to accommodate our growing company. We plan to relocate our headquarters from Watertown, South Dakota, to Williamsport in the near future.”
