A Tradition of Innovation Continues

In 1942, I.T. Quarnstrom founded Detroit Mold Engineering (today’s DME
Company) to provide mold bases in standard sizes, ready for machining of the cavity.
That was the beginning of the DME
tradition of industry-leading innovation and standardization. Seven decades later, we’re still making moldmakers, molders and designers more efficient and more productive through new products and services.
Significant advances in mold tooling technology are the DME story. With seven decades of making moldmakers, molders and designers more efficient and more productive, we’ve
become an essential resource to the industry.
