Today, Martin Yale Industries, LLC is announcing its second bolt-on addition in the last two years with the acquisition of Dry-Lam, LLC located in Shawnee, Kansas.
Dry-Lam, LLC is a leading distributor of laminating equipment and films to the office product and commercial print finishing markets. Dry-Lam’s expertise in laminating machines, films, transparencies, and tissue will expand Martin Yale’s product offerings and service.
“Dry-Lam’s two primary distribution channels, office products and commercial print, closely mirror our current go to market channels,” said Greg German, President, Martin Yale. “It is extremely exciting to add laminating to our product portfolio. This acquisition enables us to leverage already existing relationships of the two companies, giving strong Dry-Lam customers access to Martin Yale products and strong Martin Yale customers access to leading lamination products,” German adds.
The acquisition of Dry-Lam, LLC positions Martin Yale to offer a variety of laminating products to the print finishing and office markets – from lower volume desktop machines to high speed, automated trimming floor models.
As part of the acquisition, Dry-Lam’s distribution center will be relocated to Martin Yale’s facility in Wabash, Indiana. This move will increase capacity and efficiency, as well as ensure that the high standard of customer service and technical support that Dry-Lam has been known for continues.
