In 1971, D&E Machine Company was established when Dink & Etta Bennett (hence the name D&E) began machining parts in the one-car garage of their home on State Route 42 in Lebanon, Ohio. In 1985, as the business grew, they moved it to a 10,000 sq. ft. facility in Lebanon. Since December 2010, the company has been located in an industrial building just up the street from that earlier facility. D&E Machine Company was purchased in 1990 by the current owners Kent & Kim Coomer. Kent worked for Dink & Etta many years prior to purchasing the company.
D & E has been my partner of choice for many of my projects. I trust D & E’s capabilities. I can convey to Kent exactly what I need done, and he’ll make it happen. D & E is a reliable shop and upholds a customer service standard that’s unparallel to any other shop I’ve entered.
Whenever D & E Machine Co.’s name comes up in conversation, honesty and integrity are the words most often used to describe them.
There are thousands of machine shops from Massachusetts to Ohio. However I wouldn’t want to deal with anyone but Kent and his skilled machinists at D & E Machine Co.
In the design and build industry you need a shop you can depend on for quality and delivery. D & E is just that kind of company. They are a valuable resource to my company.
I called D & E to manufacture a special base for our company. They let me know that I could buy a similar base from a catalog for a fraction of the cost which saved our company a good bit of money.
A customer of ours asked for a machine shop that makes quality parts and I gave him D & E’s name.
