Trulife, an international company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, is known locally for its operations in Poulsbo, where they design and manufacture prosthetic and orthopedic devices. On January 30, Trulife acquired Bellingham company Pro CNC. Pro CNC is a full service CNC machine shop that also provides engineering, contract assembly and rapid prototyping services. This strategic acquisition considerably broadens the scope of Trulife’s business, which until recently was exclusively medical. A major part of Pro CNC’s customer base is aerospace and commercial.

Together Trulife’s Poulsbo and Bellingham operations have formed Trulife Engineered Solutions. Trulife seeks to grow their business in both locations and expand their operations in Poulsbo to include non-medical.

“Trulife has focused on manufacturing medical devices but has been looking to diversify its product line,” said Noel Murphy, executive chairman for Trulife.
