MWW Automotive and Harmony Systems and Services (Piqua, OH) have reached an agreement to combine their design, injection molding, assembly and extrusion capabilities to supply the automotive market. MWW Automotive, a design, engineering, and manufacturing firm, will collaborate with Harmony, a plastics molding, extrusion, and assembly company to expand production of automotive injection and extruded products to MWW's automotive and industrial customers.

Chuck Pinkerton, MWW Automotive CEO said the combination of the "specialized injection molding production techniques and capabilities of Harmony and the application of these technologies to MWW products" would enhance his company's "best-in-class offerings to leading automotive manufacturers in North America."

Harmony operates out of a 75,000-ft2 building north of Dayton, OH. ISO 9002 and QS 9000 certified, the company has 20 injection molding machines ranging in size from 40 to 935 tons. In addition to traditional horizontal molding, Harmony offers insert molding. Secondary operations include hot stamping, part printing, ultrasonic welding, and heat and solvent sealing.

MWW operates 10 sites globally in five countries, including the U.S. U.S. operations are located in Howell, MI, where its headquarters are located, with additional Michigan facilities in Baroda and Detroit. Elsewhere in the U.S., it has sites in California, Florida, and South Carolina.

Starting in 2007, MWW began a series of acquisitions that pushed it into manufacturing for automotive, specifically painting. In May 2007, it acquired Colortek, a 45,000-ft2 Class A painting facility in Baroda, MI. In August of the same year, MWW began operations of AutoFX, a 64,000-ft2 facility in Elkhart, IN, which handles Class A painting of van conversions. In September 2007,
 MWW acquired Modelworxx GmbH, a design and engineering firm in 
Munich Germany.
