SCM Acquires DMS
SCM Group, a leading Italian multinational company in machinery and industrial equipment, has finalized the acquisition of Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), located in Colorado Springs, CO. DMS is an important domestic player in the design, manufacture, distribution and service of innovative CNC machinery, particularly for many plastics and composite materials applications.
This acquisition will strengthen SCM Group's global leadership in those sectors and others, and complements a broad portfolio already established in these markets via its venerable CMS brand of customized CNC machines.
Andrea Aureli, SCM Group CEO said of the acquisition, “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. By adding DMS’s capabilities to those of CMS and SCM Group, 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.”
Tanya Williams will assume the role of CEO and Patrick Bollar, founder of DMS and partner in the company, will continue in his strategic role as Chief Technology Officer, leading innovation and product development.
Said Bollar, “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.”
Bollar and Williams will be directed and supported by Matt Dietrich, CMS North America’s CEO, to assure proper alignment of strategy, capture important synergies and preserve the respective technological and geographical strengths of both companies.
