The Right Support. It’s essential. Staying Focused on Being Essential
In today’s dynamic global economy, there’s no standing still. Continuous innovation and decisive action are critical to stay ahead of the intensifying competition. This is the reality for every molder, moldmaker and mold designer. And it’s the driving force behind today’s DME worldwide.
For seven decades, DME has been a mold technologies leader. Our catalog remains the industry’s broadest, our products the benchmark of high quality. And we continue to provide customers with knowledge, expertise and service that can’t be matched. But we aren’t satisfied—because our customers’ needs keep evolving, and we’re determined to help them succeed.
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 around the world. For other offerings, we’re building strategic global partnerships to bring customers the highest-quality products at the lowest cost. Meanwhile, we’re standardizing global product platforms to provide consistency to our customers, wherever they’re located. And no matter the product, no matter the supplier, we’re working harder than ever to ensure the superior design and quality our customers count on.
Today’s DME also is aggressively developing new products that help our customers capture emerging markets, advance environmental initiatives and more. We’re even working with outside inventors to bring their ideas to market. It makes no difference where a new idea comes from, as long as it solves customers’ problems.
Meanwhile, as the entire industry faces a pressing skilled-worker shortage, we’re taking action through DME Plastics University, our comprehensive training and scholarship program that’s cultivating the next generation of mold technology experts.
And the evolution of DME continues ... After all, we’re more than a manufacturer. More than a distributor. We’re an essential resource. Our customers’ challenges keep changing, and we’re helping them adapt every step of the way.

This configuration also allows us to customize products where necessary, delivering global solutions that meet regional needs and passing along cost benefits to customers.
Meanwhile, in an era of doubt about many products sourced from low-cost suppliers, we put all our products, no matter where they originate, through the same rigorous, ongoing quality assurance and control measures. Our customers know they can depend on all DME products, all the time, all around the world.
