Mold component supplier DMS North America, headquartered in Oldcastle, Ontario, has expanded with the addition of DMS Asia to its group of companies. Currently, in addition to its headquarters office, which also houses DMS's distribution and assembly operations, the company has facilities in Taunton, MA; Schaumburg, IL; and Fountain Valley, CA.
DMS to now has been a North American supplier of standard and custom mold components and related accessories to the moldmaking, molding and die casting industries. DMS has supplied these industries for over 50 years. With the Asian expansion, the company intends to increase its customer base to include Asia's moldmaking community.
In 2009, Dave Belleperche purchased the DMS North America operation with the intent to increase market share and begin reaching out to supply a growing global market. "We have been adding new products monthly since mid-2009 and now it's time to look at supplying these products outside of our current market territory," Belleperche said. "I visited Hong Kong and the ChinaPlast show in Shanghai as well as various plastics related companies in Southern China last April (2010), and came to the conclusion that DMS should be offering our products and services to the Asian markets."
The new venture has opened offices in Hong Kong with initial warehouse distribution in Dongguan, China....
