Makino Inc. has announced its merger with EDM consumables supplier Global EDM Supplies. The merger is expected to expand the company's SST Consumables business, providing customers with broader geographic reach, greater product diversity and increased accessibility to experienced technical services and support.

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

Headquartered in Mason, OH, Global EDM Supplies is a supplier of quality EDM technologies and turn-key application solutions. Its EDM consumables catalog includes more than 3,000 different EDM parts and supplies from leading manufacturers, including wire, filters, wear parts, resin, fluid and lubricants, and electrodes. Since its founding in 1995, Global EDM Supplies has built a reputation for its technical support and customer service across the United States with eight locations across the country.

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

"Global and SST are committed to offering fast local support with complete machine repair and maintenance programs," said a Makino spokesperson. "SST and Global support and services will continue to operate uninterrupted across all regions and locations."
