FAMILY-OWNED U.S. AND SWISS MOLD MAKERS AGREE TO COOPERATION PARTNERSHIP FOR SERVICE
Privately held and family owned mold makers Accede Mold & Tool Co., Inc. and KEBO AG have agreed to a cooperation partnership, providing their respective customers responsive regional service capabilities in North America and Europe. The arrangement came after KEBO prompted discussions and meetings around NPE2018, with subsequent collaboration and meetings at their facilities in both Rochester, NY, USA and Neuhausen am Rheinfall, Switzerland.
“This arrangement brings the best of both worlds to our customers. They capitalize on the quality, attention to detail, and the nimble responsiveness that comes when working with a private family-owned company. Now with our cooperation partnership, our customers also have access to a global support network similarly offered by the large public groups that are in the market. It’s a win-win for our customers,” explains Camille Sackett, ACCEDE’s Director of Business Development and Engineering Support.
