SPEC & Schold Strategic Partnership

SPEC and Schold Manufacturing, LLC enter into a strategic partnership to offer liquid mixing/blending, milling and dispersion systems.

Partnering with SPEC Engineering, Schold Manufacturing (Schold) can offer clients a single source solution for all of their liquid processing needs, whether it is a new facility or modifications to an existing production line. With SPEC, Schold will be able to usher their company into a new era, providing value added engineering services and solutions in addition to equipment manufacturing. This will lead to growth for both companies and expand our reaches in our respective industries. “As we look to expand our product line, the experience SPEC Engineering brings to our team will play an important role in the development of a true, sanitary, food-grade disperser to offer into the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries,” says John Duong, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Schold Manufacturing.

On the reverse role, Schold can offer SPEC Engineering a full machine and fabrication shop to support our systems needs. As Schold has all the proper tooling to not only manufacture their core mixers and dispersers, but large sized stands, mezzanines, and other custom fabrications can be built at their location as well.

Schold Manufacturing (Schold), formerly Schold Machine, is a manufacturer of industrial mixing, dispersion and milling equipment. Schold has been in operation since 1949 and is based in Chicago, IL. With over 67 years of experience, Schold’s reputation in the ink, paints, and coatings industries is one of providing robust, reliable equipment our clients can depend on day after day.

Schold and SPEC are both excited to be partners. It is a great growth opportunity for both parties as we complement each other with the industries we traditionally work in. We look forward to the coming years of collaboration with Schold.
