Durable Mecco

Durable Mecco began as Durable Engravers and was formed in 1952 in Chicago, Illinois as a manufacturer of traditional marking products including steel stamps and metal coding type.  The company has since broadened its scope and manufacturing expertise by investing in employees, new equipment, and through numerous acquisitions such as Quality Die Company of Chicago, IL and Fredricks Marking Products also of Chicago, IL.  

In 2006, Durable Engravers acquired the former Mecco / M.E. Cunningham Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who for over 100 years was a leader in indent marking technology for heavy-duty industrial applications.  The newly formed Durable Mecco combines the breadth of manufacturing capabilities and technical expertise of Durable Engravers with the specific product and application expertise of Mecco / M.E. Cunningham Company.  Together, a powerhouse has emerged in the marking and identification field.

VisiMark, Inc.

VisiMark, Inc. was formed in 1985 in Worcester, Massachusetts specializing in the production of steel stamps, brass and steel coding type, hot stamping dies, as well as part marking and mold engraving.  Through numerous acquisitions including Ideal Engraving of Orange, NJ and A.D.
