Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

Okuma America Corporation, a world-leader in CNC machines, has launched a campaign featuring the success story of family-run manufacturing customer Dimension Machine Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Don and Ruthann Barth, owners of Dimension Machine, launched the company in their garage in 1994. Today, Dimension has a thriving business powered by their 18 Okuma CNC machine tools. The company has recently expanded, adding revolutionary new technology.

Story Highlights
•“Five Kids, a Mortgage and No Job” – A surprise job loss leads Don and wife Ruthann to quickly set up shop in their garage. They had one customer. Nineteen years later they still have that customer, and a thriving business.
•“Customers’ Need for Speed” – Dimension sets themselves apart with fast turnarounds and ready inventory for customers’ urgent needs. This builds a strong reputation and lasting customer relationships.
•“Now We Will Have No Others” – Dimension tries Okuma CNC machines and also some other brands. They learn the big difference. “The Okumas make parts every day, and we see the profit coming in.”
•“Don’t Count Your Daughters Out” – The Barth family puts plans in motion for the succession of their company. Daughter Ruthie and son Kevin – both engineers – are leading the next generation.
•“Eureka Moment” – Don’s keen sense of “what’s next” in CNC machining technology leads to a recent expansion and the addition of a large horizontal machining center with an automated pallet pool and tool changer. This revolutionizes Dimension’s capabilities, efficiency and productivity.
