Makino Inc. (Mason, OH) announced its merger with EDM consumables supplier Global EDM Supplies. The merger is expected to expand the company’s Single Source Technologies (SST) consumables business by broadening its geographic reach and product diversity.

Makino offers a wide range of high-precision metal-cutting and EDM machinery, including horizontal and vertical machining centers, five-axis machining centers, graphite machining centers, and wire and sinker EDMs.

“We are very pleased to continue our growth in the consumables business through the merger of Global EDM Supplies,” commented Don Lane, CEO of Makino Inc., in a prepared statement. “We look forward to better serving our customers through the addition of Global’s skilled and experienced personnel, geographic presence and product portfolio.”

Also headquartered in Mason, OH, Global EDM Supplies provides EDM technologies and turnkey application solutions. Its EDM consumables catalogue includes more than 3,000 different EDM parts and supplies from leading manufacturers, including wire, filters, wear parts, resin, fluid and lubricants, and electrodes.

“We are excited about the prospects for expanding Global’s reach afforded by our merger with Makino,” said Tom Kucharski, President of Global EDM Supplies Inc. “Our unmatched technical and personal service will be further enhanced by the resources of Makino and SST.”
