In 1993 Dimar Manufacturing Corp was founded in a business incubator in Lackawanna, NY by Jack Wagner and Robert (Smitty) Smyzcyski. Dimar was named for their wives, Diane and Marion (Di-Mar.) Their first customer was ICE (Innovative Concepts in Entertainment) and the first products were components for ICE’s Bubble Hockey Game. From the beginning, Dimar encouraged a family friendly environment. Original employees included Bill Dudley as GM, Greg Fry in Engineering, and Anita Soltis accounting. Eventually Dimar was purchased by ICE owners, Ralph Coppola and Jack Willert. Dimar and ICE moved to their present location on Main Street in Clarence, NY in 1995.
In 2003 the company was purchased by Greg Fry, General Manager and Tom Kowalski, Controller. Greg is currently President and Tom is Vice President/C.F.O. In 2012 Dimar purchased a spin-off of the former Buffalo Forge which makes large industrial blowers and other heavy gauge fabrications. There are 145 team members with plans to add 20 more.
Dimar became the area’s premier custom contract manufacturer of sheet metal-based products. Growth was fueled by continuous reinvestment in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and a Team dedicated to serving customers with outstanding service.
Dimar serves several markets including: Entertainment (Ticket Redemption Games); Information Technology; Solar Equipment; Medical Equipment; Industrial Cabinets; and Agricultural Equipment. Operations include flat laser cutting; tube laser cutting, forming, punching, welding, machining, powder coating and assembly. Most Dimar customers are found within a triangle that stretches from Milwaukee to New England and down to Atlanta. Products are ultimately shipped word-wide by our customers.
Dimar is very positive about manufacturing in Clarence, NY and reinvesting for continued growth. The company appreciates being part of this vibrant community. Community activities include donating material for the Scoreboard for Clarence High School; fabricating decorative additions to Street Signs throughout Clarence Hollow; and powder coating the Jaws of Life for the Clarence Fire Department.
