DME Marks 70th Anniversary with Call for Inventions
Company drives innovation by working with inventors to produce / market new products
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – DME Company, a global leader in mold technologies, is celebrating the milestone of its 70th anniversary in 2012 by helping inventors reach their own milestones – bringing great inventions to market that solve customers' challenges.
For the past 70 years, DME has aggressively developed new products that help customers capture emerging markets, advance environmental initiatives and drive success. As part of that ongoing commitment, the company this year is putting more resources toward seeking new product ideas from inventors around the world.
"DME has the deepest knowledge and engineering talent in the industry, but we don't shy away from ideas that originate outside our facilities," said Dave Lawrence, DME President. "No matter where an idea comes from, we're eager to make it happen if it solves a customer's challenge."
To help inventors realize the full potential of their ideas, DME provides the resources of 30 global locations, customers in more than 70 countries and one of the most robust tooling technologies product catalogs in the world. The company also backs each product through trade shows, online and print advertising and other marketing channels.
"There is no better partner than DME to commercialize a product idea and bring an invention to the hands of all who can benefit from it," said Lawrence.
Brian Finkel, the inventor of DME Turbulent Flow Plastic Baffles, agreed.
"DME has a big market share and they've been around longer than anyone else out there," said Finkel. "I value their opinion, their marketplace and their trustworthy name standing behind my baffles. They've been a great partner, and I'd definitely work with them again."
Turbulent Flow Plastic Baffles, which improve mold cooling performance over traditional brass baffles, are among many successful DME-inventor collaborations over the years. In this anniversary year, customers can look forward to even more advanced time-, money- and material-saving solutions that DME and its inventor partners deliver.
"We've thrived for the past 70 years by understanding that, in a fast-changing world, innovation is essential," said Lawrence. "Our goal is to continue using industry knowledge, engineering expertise and outside resources to develop technologies that help our customers adapt and succeed."
