Heartland Machine & Engineering Named Exclusive North American Importer
by Taiwan’s Largest Machine Tool Manufacturer, FFG DMC

Franklin, IN (January 19, 2016)
Taiwan’s largest machine tool makerFFG DMC by Heartland sign, Fair Friend Group (FFG), has named Indiana-based Heartland Machine & Engineering its exclusive North American importer for its Korean product line FFG DMC. The FFG DMC product line provides CNC lathes, milling machines and machining centers to companies in the diesel engine and fuel injection, aerospace, orthopedic, and automotive industries and job shops that are suppliers to these industries.

DMC Korea was acquired in January 2015 by FFG. FFG recently integrated the DMC product line into its global machine concept and established FFG DMC, now positioned as one of South Korea’s top three machine tool manufacturers.

The acquisition has allowed Heartland Machine & Engineering (HME) to continue its three-year history as a national leader in DMC machine sales. This leadership position played a pivotal role in selecting the company as the North American importer for FFG DMC under the name FFG DMC by Heartland.

“Heartland’s extensive knowledge of the DMC product line and the sales success they’ve had with the product gives us every confidence that they are the right partner for FFG DMC as we work toward expanding our market in the U.S., Canada and Mexico,” said David Chu, president of FFG DMC. “Mr. Goin has already established a team of strong distributors in key regions throughout North America, and this will strengthen our presence and provide a high level of service and innovative solutions for our customers.”

Heartland began representing the DMC product line in 2012 and was able to establish a strong Midwest presence quickly, which they attribute to grassroots efforts, understanding market needs, and the ability to fill a gap in industry needs.

“Our sweet spot is providing exceptional value at a fair price with machines that are reliable and high performing,” said Tom Goin, president of HME. “We focus on unmatched quality and customer service, with competitive pricing and quick turn-around. The most significant key asset is our experienced team and engineering integration into the sales process.”

FFG DMC by Heartland currently has distributors in 37 states and Canada. All of the distributors attended a recent FFG DMC distributor open house where they were immersed in product technology education, hands-on demonstrations, and product automation capabilities.
