IMS Company, a diversified distributor and light manufacturer of industrial products, was founded by A. Reynolds “Ren” Morse in Cleveland, Ohio in 1949. A plastics industry pioneer, Mr. Morse recognized the need for a supplier of products and a source for solutions to meet the growing needs of a blossoming industry.
Since its inception 62 years ago, IMS Company has expanded greatly and now serves multiple industries through its divisions:
- IMS Industrial Molding Supplies (Accessories, auxiliary equipment, parts, supplies, and technical advice serving the entire plastics processing industry)
- IMS Industrial Manufacturing Supplies (Power/Hand Tools & Hardware, Electrical & Cleaning Supplies, HVAC, Safety & Storage Supplies)
- IMS Engineering & Machining Services (Custom replacement parts, repair and refurbishing services, with a broad scope of design/build/fabrication capabilities)
Off-the-shelf or custom-designed, all IMS Company divisions market the best products and solutions to meet the requirements of their customers. IMS Industrial Molding Supplies is the oldest, most experienced, and the most trusted source of accessories, auxiliary equipment, parts, supplies, and technical advice serving the entire plastics processing industry. Included on their website are valuable resources like Techie Tips - a collection of useful articles covering a variety of plastics processing topics, equipment and machinery manuals, ebulletins on ways to run faster, produce better parts, conserve utilities, extend equipment life and more, and a handy page with converters and calculators.
IMS Company offers a full-scope of product choices to meet the demands of almost any manufacturing setting. In today’s budget conscious environment, IMS product specialists can help you find the products that will fit your desired quality level while making the most of your operating budget. They explain how they position their products, identify quality levels and determine pricing so you know you’re getting the maximum out of your investment.
Responding to the ever changing needs of their customers, IMS Company has added green products that can help lower the use of and the impact on precious natural resources - air, water, oil, coal, natural gas etc. - while saving you money in the process.
With their intimate knowledge of the industry, IMS Company understands that some of the challenges their customers face cannot be met by standard products alone. For difficult projects, IMS supports its customers with a staff of Technical Sales/Service Product Specialists whose combined experience exceeds 165 years in the industry.
Recently named to the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s list of “best places to work in Northeast Ohio”, IMS boasts a very satisfied work force. The evaluation for the Plain Dealer’s Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from an independent survey the employees completed this past March. 98% of IMS’ employees responded to the survey, which is almost unheard of, as the average number of responses is only 62%.
A Tribute customer since 1988, IMS Company was the first to offer a complete line of molding equipment to gain ISO 9001:2008 certification. IMS Company’s policy is to provide unsurpassed customer satisfaction by offering superior product value, timely product delivery and ongoing product support.
