Mold- and diemaker JM MoldSouth (Easley, SC) has shortened its name to JMMS following the transfer of company ownership from its founder and president, David M. Bowers, to his son, David M. Bowers II (CEO) and daughter, Michelle Powell (COO).
“We wanted to create a new brand—one that acknowledges our heritage, but communicates our next-generation approach to full-service tooling,” said David Bowers II. “Michelle and I learned the fundamentals from our father and now we’re applying those lessons, with investments in equipment and training, a global view of manufacturing, and an insistence on best practices throughout the organization.
“The economy’s changing and it’s going to be hard on companies that don’t have the financial resources and capacity to evolve. We have both, so we’re investing across the board to do more business with companies that build their brands on high-quality manufacturing.”
JMMS provides full-service tooling capabilities in plastics and metal forming to OEMs and suppliers in aerospace, appliances, automotive, consumer products, electronics, lawn and garden, medical technologies, power generation, power tools, and returnable packaging. —[email protected]
