FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A.W.T. World Trade Announces the Acquisition of American M&M Screen Printing Equipment Company
CHICAGO, IL USA A.W.T. WORLD
TRADE, Inc., has entered into an agreement to acquire
American M&M Screen Printing Equipment Company.
Michael Green, President of A.W.T.
World Trade, said, A.W.T.s primary mission has always been to
provide the screen printer with the most extensive line of high quality screen
printing equipment and supplies.
The consolidation of the A.W.T. and American product lines will enable us to
further that mission, enhancing
our current products with additional, technologically advanced equipment."
In addition, A.W.T. will continue to
support American M&M equipment with replacement parts and
services, said Green.
A.W.T. World Trade is a complete
manufacturing source for screen printing equipment, supplies and
parts. The company was first in the industry to develop and integrate the Remote
Diagnostic Phone Modem
Interface, ensuring instant service and trouble-shooting worldwide. This module,
providing a direct link
between the on-board processor and A.W.T.s central diagnostic computer, was
first integrated into the Accu-
Print High Tech series of presses. In addition to their extensive line of screen
printing equipment and supplies,
A.W.T. is also one of the few industry manufacturers who offer remanufacturing
equipment and services.
A.W.T.'s roots can be traced back to
American Screen Printing Equipment Co., founded in
1949 by Sheldon and Melvin Green, father and uncle, respectively, of A.W.T.
Green. American soon became the major industry leader as it grew into the
largest screen printing equipment
and supply manufacturer in the world. American revolutionized textile screen
printing with the Rototex, Arrow
Multiprinter, Centurion presses and Texair dryers. The graphics sector of screen
printing experienced a giant
leap in print quality with such heavy duty, high quality, and reliable presses
like the Cameo, Daytona, Hercules,
and Viking. American M&M resulted when American Screen Printing Equipment
Company merged with
M&M Research in 1993.
A.W.T. World Trade, Inc. has a
worldwide network of dealers and distributors. Their corporate
headquarters and manufacturing facility are located in Chicago, Illinois.
Additional sales and distribution
offices are in Miami, Fla., serving the Central and South American countries,
and in Holland, Netherlands,
serving the European market.
