Our History

DMI started from Douglas Machining Inc., which pioneered the pallet design and manufacturing for Tektronix back in 1985. Two brothers, Bill and Glenn Hawkins, purchased the business in 1988 and began expanding the product lines, improving machine capabilities, and focusing on customer service. This formula for success has helped the company grow to ten times its original size.

In 2006 Raj Savara, an OSU graduate who holds a BSEE in electrical engineering, purchased DMI International from Bill and Glenn.

While continuing to focus on quality products and customer service, Raj also works diligently to maintain the company’s position as a world-class leader in tooling, machining, and stencil manufacturing.

In 2013 DMI purchased the stencil-manufacturing operations facility in Oregon, Beam-on, and in early 2014 a new building was added to our existing facility in North Plains for the purpose of laser stencil manufacturing.
