Now that the HPM factory has closed in Mount Gilead, Ohio, Epco LLC is promoting its ability to deliver spare parts, service and remanufacturing of HPM's injection molding presses and die-casting machines.
The HPM factory in Mount Gilead closed in late December. On Jan. 4, HPM officials issued a news release saying the machinery maker temporarily suspended operations in Mount Gilead.
HPM officials could not be reached for this story.
Epco issued its own news release Feb. 8, targeting owners of HPM equipment.
Throughout January, we experienced an increased volume of inquiries from HPM owners for parts and service, said Rob Burkett, Epco sales manager.
Because of this recent interest, Epco is extending a special discount to HPM users to make them aware of the services we provide.
From Feb. 1 to May 1, Epco is offering a 10 percent discount on service and a 5 percent discount on parts to HPM equipment owners. Other discounts are available for press rebuilding.
Epco can service HPM models including Freedom, Trueblood vertical presses, New Britain and Welltec.
Epco, based in Beaverton, Mich., at its sister plant run by Brown Machine LLC, offers parts, general maintenance, remanufacturing or rebuilding specific assemblies such as the clamp, linkage, injection unit and shot end. Epco claims to have rebuilt more than 100 HPM machines during the last 30 years.
