Echo Engineering, headquartered in Indianapolis, has experienced exceptional growth over the last decade and looks forward to accelerating this success with a manufacturing facility located in the heart of the automotive industry.
Moving forward, Ammex Plastics will operate under Echo’s umbrella, as Echo Engineering and Production Supplies, Inc. DBA Ammex Plastics.
“Ammex Plastics sets the bar when it comes to providing quality components, ensuring peace of mind for their customers resulting in an unprecedented customer retention rate,” explains Kingdon Offenbacker, CEO of Echo Engineering.
Echo’s core technologies and Ammex’s product offerings align seamlessly. Ammex’s reputation for producing items of superior quality while maintaining fast turnaround times matches that of The Echo Way, Echo’s commitment to build partnerships and provide lasting solutions for their customers.
