Apex Machine Company Acquires Desco Equipment

Desco Equipment Corporation (Desco), Twinsburg, OH/USA, provider of dry-offset printing machinery has been acquired by the Florida-based custom printing machine manufacturer, Apex Machine Company, Inc.

Principals Leo Henry and Gene Gilbert have agreed to remain involved in Desco’s operations in order to ensure a smooth transition for customers, vendors and employees.

Desco specializes in manufacturing systems for the handling and decorating of closures and various sizes of components such as pails, buckets, cups, tubes and lids in the global market. The company engineers and manufactures high-quality printing systems as well as spare parts, plates, blankets and inks. Apex is a leader in the design, engineering and manufacturing of specialized printing and parts handling machinery for three dimensional components, offering advanced, high-end engineered solutions for complex product handling and printing in the medical, pharmaceutical, personal care and automotive segments.

As Apex Machine’s CEO, Bob Coningsby, commented; “With the tremendous synergies between our two companies, the acquisition of Desco makes a lot of sense as it adds additional manufacturing capacity and a wider machine range to the existing Apex program which has traditionally catered to smaller diameter products and more specialized high technology applications. Desco products will benefit from the innovative engineering expertise that Apex can provide, along with access to more advanced, alternative printing processes which may offer new capabilities for current and future Desco machine users. Apex will be offering a full support package in the future for spares and servicing for all existing Desco customers, along with specialist ink supplies through group company, Capex Corporation, and advanced print development and trial facilities from Apex’s print laboratory.”

Both Desco and Apex will be present with a booth at NPE2015.
