We want to feature Lucid Innovative Technologies, www.lucidinnovativetechnologies.com as the new collaborative 2017 startup created by combining the expertise and capabilities of two local and growing companies, Manufacturing Methods, www.manufacturingmethods.com and OrthoKinetic Technologies, www.orthokinetic.com located on the other side of the Cape Fear River in the Town of Leland and Brunswick County. This new firm is positioned to provide a dynamic new contract precision manufacturing and distribution company targeted to the medical and dental devices. Lucid not only works in the design, production, and distribution precision parts but also provides guidance and services in working with clients through the prototyping phases and ultimate FDA requirements and approvals.

The company’s advances in the manufacturing of Nitinol products, a new and dynamic material with super elasticity and when manufactured properly the ability to give the metal memory characteristics and capabilities, provides a service capability unique to the area and the state.. With ISO 13485 and FDA certifications and industry contacts and resources, a clean room facility and the ability to do it all from prototyping parts and assemblies to full production for the medical and dental market all from one place right here in the greater Wilmington business area customers get products to market quicker and at less cost with all services provided by one supplier.

Pete Peterson, Founder & Principal
With $150 in the bank, Pete put the “Open for Business” sign for Manufacturing Methods in 2006. Pete has remained a hands-on leader of his company; always prepared to do the work that his 50 employees now do. Today a multi-million-dollar company, he is ready to make Lucid an equal or even greater success.

Dr. Lisa Ferrara, Co-founder & Principal

There is no one better connected, more well-known and accomplished than her. With her credentials and hands on business experiences, the leadership team at Lucid couldn’t be better.
