Company Profile Request update info.
DMC® products have been advertised in the U.S. since the 1920s, well before the company was incorporated in the U.S. in 1934 as The DMC® Corporation. Originally based in New York City, the company moved to Elizabeth, NJ, in the early 1960s for easier access to Port Elizabeth, the port of entry for DMC products. During the 1980s, following several years of tremendous expansion and growth, The DMC® Corporation moved its executive offices and warehouse facilities to a new structure in South Kearny, NJ. Today, DMC® has subsidiaries and agents in 100 countries around the world, and DMC® products are available in approximately 130 countries. DMC® needlework threads continue to be manufactured in Mulhouse, France, by approximately 1,000 workers, working in 3 shifts around the clock. The DMC® plant maintains the highest environmental standards and includes its own water recycling operation. In fact, in 1994 DMC® was awarded the ISO 9002 International Certificate for Manufacturing Excellence, and the Oeko-Tex 100 Certification for its high environmental standards. On December 18th 2009 DMC announced the acquisition of the Crafts & Fabrics Division of Charles Craft Inc. Charles Craft is the US market leader in needlework fabric and the partnership was a perfect complement to DMC Embroidery Floss, the number one floss in the world. The purchase of Charles Craft Fabrics has enabled DMC to strengthen its leadership role in the needlework category and expand its portfolio of superior quality needlework products.
