Hawk Mold and Die Supply’s move to partner with DME marks a significant transition for the organization, having previously been a “premier” stocking distribution channel for a competitor for over 30 years. Hawk Mold and Die Supply owner Glenn Hertzler stated, “We simply couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to join an industry leader. These types of opportunities are rare, and there were so many positives to this agreement, most importantly for our customers, to whom we can now offer an unmatched catalog of mold technologies, mold bases, and industrial supplies.”
Scott Smith, DME Director of Sales, Eastern Region was quoted as saying “Milacron and DME are pleased to welcome the Hawk Mold and Die Supply team to the family as an exclusive partner to DME.” Smith added, “The agreement is win-win. Hawk Mold and Die Supply now have the ability to offer their customers a much larger product catalog with DME’s industry-leading mold technologies and industrial supplies and DME and Milacron get to partner with a Northeastern regional powerhouse and enter accounts that were previously unreachable.”
For over 75 years DME has been a mold technologies leader. The DME catalog remains the industry’s broadest, and their products are the benchmark of high quality while providing customers with unmatched knowledge, expertise, and service.
Never one to stand still and be satisfied with the status quo, DME with its partner vendors have been on a product development spree as of late with 15 new product launches and product line extensions at NPE 2018 this past May in Orlando, FL. DME President Peter Smith stated, “At DME we’re confronting the ever-changing marketplace by reinventing the way we do business. For products we can make better and faster, we’re focusing our manufacturing operations on specialized centers of excellence and partnering with the industries’ best to ensure our customers get the best technologies, solutions, and service.
