DiPaolo Machine Tools, Mississauga, ON, is the new distributor in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick for Grob Systems five axis universal machining centres, high volume production systems and assembly and testing equippment.
Grob Systems will continue its direct support of automotive OEMs with dedicated account managers, a strategy which has earned the company multiple supplier awards in recent years.
“The partnership with GROB brings several advantages. The design of this five axis machine is unique in its category, allowing exceptional flexibility and creativity in the process,” says Nelson Martins, president of DiPaolo Machine Tools. “Equally important is that Grob is manufacturing hundreds of machines in Ohio each year, so service and all replacement parts are close to our customers,” he says.
Bill Vejnovic, VP of sales at GROB Systems, says he was impressed by DiPaolo’s heritage first as a manufacturing and service company. “The background of this organization shows an appreciation for high-quality machine design and construction, and a full-service commitment to the customer. That’s right in line with the philosophy of Grob Systems.”
According to Vejnovic, new machine installations, technical support and replacement parts will remain the direct responsibility of Grob Systems. “The DiPaolo team will be an additional resource for new customers,” he said. To ensure fast service response, DiPaolo’s staff from Toronto and Quebec will be trained at the 390,000 sq ft Grob Systems factory in Bluffton, OH.
