SCM Group, Italy, has acquired US-based Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), located in Colorado Springs, which designs, manufactures, distributes and services CNC machinery for plastics and composites applications.
This acquisition will strengthen SCM Group's global position in these and other sectors, and is complimentary to its CMS brand of customised CNC machines.
“The addition of DMS to the CMS family of brands broadens our portfolio of capabilities, and expands available technologies we can deploy within our core business of offering custom CNC machine solutions," says Andrea Aureli, SCM Group CEO. "By adding DMS together with those of CMS and SCM Group capabilities, we can offer our customers a wider range of solutions with expanded features and greater opportunities for creating manufacturing efficiencies and higher return on investment.”
Patrick Bollar, founder of DMS, will continue in his role as Chief Technology Officer, leading innovation and product development, and Tanya Williams will assume the role of CEO of DMS. They will be supported by Matt Dietrich, CMS North America CEO, to assure proper alignment of strategy, capture of important synergies, and preservation of the respective technological and geographical strengths of both companies.
“As part of SCM Group, we are excited to now have wider access to global markets, very experienced and proven capital equipment manufacturing expertise, and resources of a leading worldwide manufacturer,” notes Patrick Bollar.
