Eastman Machine Company, a 120 year-old manufacturing company specializing in cutting equipment, announced that it has acquired privately-held, Nashville, Tennessee-based Saber Industries LLC.

Saber Industries LLC, a manufacturer of fabric spreading machines since the 1930's, will relocate operations to Eastman's downtown Buffalo, NY location by the end of March.

The acquisition further enhances Eastman's position as an equipment supplier to fabricators that utilize flexible material goods (apparel; upholstered furniture; composite materials; technical textiles) and complements its line of existing cutting room technologies.

“Eastman and Saber Industries each use modern technology to maximize customers spreading and cutting production and share a long history in the industry,” said Robert Stevenson, Eastman's president and chief executive officer.

“We are excited about the acquisition of Saber Industries for a number of reasons, including their market-leading presence, and we look forward to collaboratively growing our business. Introducing additional models and capacities of spreading equipment to the existing line will emphasize Eastman's role as a complete resource for material handling, spreading and cutting equipment.”

In addition to Eastman's line of single-ply cutting systems, a summer release is anticipated for a new multi-ply cutting system. The reciprocating, straight-knife cutting system is capable of cutting up to 5cm (2”) of compressed material.

The Saber line of systems will allow Eastman to offer a comprehensive package for front-end preparation of the fabric, capable of handling up to 2,200 pound rolls of material for spreading, plus a range of cutting and software solutions.

Eastman has been manufacturing manually-operated cutting machines, automated CNC cutting systems, CAD/CAM software programs and material handling equipment in Buffalo since 1888.
