The acquisition enables the newly formed Max 3, LLC to provide samples, expanded engineering and lifting capabilities to its clients.

Maximum Mold Inc. (Benton Harbor, Michigan) has acquired Mach Mold Inc. (Benton Harbor, Michigan), a custom builder of plastic molds such as thermoplastic injection molds, injection thermoset molds, compression molds and extrusion blow molds. Bill and Vicki Mach own Mach Mold, which has been in business for 36 years.

The acquisition will include a name change to Max 3, LLC, but little else is changing. Max 3, LLC will use the Mach brand to continue the tradition of providing quality moldmaking techniques and services to the automotive and appliance industries—a tradition that has been around for more than 30 years. All the employees will work with the new company in Benton Harbor at a 30,000-square foot facility with trucking capabilities.

The purchase gives the Maximum Mold Group the ability to take a customer’s concept to the production floor and provide sampling, expanded engineering and lifting capabilities. Mach Mold’s workforce includes both apprentices and veterans who have been in the industry for 25 years. Adding this team to the mix enables Maximum Mold to take on larger mold projects and become more of a single-source provider for its customers’ needs.

Maximum Mold owners David and Cindy LaGrow also own Max 2 in Coloma, Michigan. This is not Mr. Lagrow’s first experience with Mach Mold. He was employed there more than 20 years ago before he started Maximum Mold. He credits Bill Mach for teaching him about business and the trade.
