Durable Mecco Acquires Stamp-Rite Division
The manufacturer of industrial marking equipment acquired the Steel Stamp Division to expand their steel stamp, steel type and marking die applications further into markets ranging from machine shops to heavy forging and metals.
Stamp-Rite Supersine has been manufacturing a wide range of identification products including signs, labels, rubber and steel stamps since 1955. Their mission is to continue to produce nearly indestructible architectural signs that surpass expectations of durability, aesthetics and economy, focusing on their unique die-raised letter and thermal formed signage, and expanding their already established label printing operation.
Durable Mecco has been producing steel stamps, steel type and marking dies for over 100 years and is the U.S. distributor of the Couth line of impact presses. With manufacturing operations in Franklin Park, IL, and Worcester, Durable Mecco is a leading supplier of industrial marking solutions that include indenting products, ink marking solutions, custom engraving services, as well as office marking products and facility identification. With customers ranging from light-duty machine shops to the heavy-duty forging and metals industry, the company is ready to be your One-Stop Shop for part marking and traceability solutions.
A 30-year veteran in the marking industry, Laurie Barcaskey, has been named as the account manager for this group of customers. Barcaskey has been involved with providing marking solutions as a direct sales representative and by supporting industrial distributors and manufacturer’s representatives since 1980. Her tenure in the industry started with her family business based in Pittsburgh, PA, that manufactured marking equipment ranging from steel stamps to automated work stations until it was sold in 2002.
In recent years she has sold facility identification, thermal transfer labeling systems and supplies, as well as dot peen and laser marking machines. Placing strong emphasis on the right solution for the job, she is prepared to transition the Stamp-Rite Supersine steel stamp customers into the Durable Mecco family with the same consistent quality products and on-time deliveries.
