Moldmakers join forces across Atlantic

Recognizing customers’ demand for rapid service and support, and mindful of the costs of setting up a 100%-owned operation overseas, two injection mold manufacturers, Zahoransky, based in Freiburg, Germany, and American Tool & Mold (ATM) of Clearwater Beach, Florida, have signed an agreement to handle local mold and tooling service for each other in Europe, Northern America and Asia.

At last month’s NPE tradeshow, Zahoransky displayed this two-component mold for making toothbrush inserts for Philips electrical toothbrushes.



ATM, with 180 employees, specializes in precision high-cavitation molds for processors across a range of industries, while Zahoransky specializes in multi-component molds, so the companies have almost no overlap in their programs. Both moldmakers are certified under ISO 9001.

Zahoransky also manufacturers and markets blister packing machines, parts handling systems, and complete production lines for a wide variety of brushes, and the two companies foresee AMT eventually helping market Zahoransky’s other equipment in North America. Zahoransky has manufacturing facilities in Germany, Spain, India, China, and the U.S., but both of its moldmaking operations are in Germany. [email protected]
