Roger Hargens, chief executive of Accumold, an Ankeny, Iowa, maker of small, highly specialized components for medical device firms, had hoped to begin hiring more aggressively last year. But after the delay of a big order last fall, he waited instead.

The past few months have convinced him to take the plunge. “We’re starting to scale up in a big way,” said Hargens, who is heading to Europe on Monday to meet with customers in Switzerland, France and the United Kingdom. “We had to hold off, but now we’re back on track.”
