JMMS Inc.--MMT's 2011 Leadtime Leader Award small shop honorable mention winner--has once again expanded its reach, capabilities and expertise with a truly global partner. 

Portuguese-based Moldetipo Group and Easley, South Carolina-based JMMS are now partners in the molding industry.  Check out this slideshow and video.

Both companies signed an agreement to expand their presence globally to manage projects in the automotive sector. With a combined 50 years of experience between both companies, they are now truly global players, handling operations in China, India, Mexico and Germany, in addition to Portugal and the U.S.  JMMS will be Moldetipo Group’s only official partner in the U.S. The agreement is set to start on June 1st. Moldetipo Group CEO Mr. Rui Silva and JMMS CEO Mr. David Bowers II will head this partnership, which will allow both companies to provide stronger support to OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2 demands. 

"Moldetipo Group is now a global company with footprints in all continents. We’ve been in the business since 1996 and have since focused on giving the best engineering expertise to our clients. We’re one of the leading companies in the well-renowned Portuguese molding industry, exporting 100 percent of production as well as being one of only two European companies to master and develop what is known as water injection technology, which allows you to sculpt and inject plastic parts with water. Teaming up with JMMS will allow us to widen our post-sale warranty and rely on an experienced and certified company," says Silva.

“Having a European partner means JMMS is reinforcing a global sourcing network. This deal with Moldetipo Group allows us to expand our market by servicing their clients in the U.S. as well as widen our cross-source on larger programs. At the same time, teaming up with a new company provides us with the possibility to learn new technologies, such as water injection. This means an additional diversity for our product/market mix, thanks to synergies of like-minded leadership and business strategies. In other words, this is a real partnership,”Bowers II.
