ADDISON, IL — Effective Feb. 1, manufacturers’ representative The Whittemore Co. has expanded their partnership with Lyndex-Nikken to include the state of Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. Prior to this change, Whittemore represented Lyndex-Nikken’s wide range of high-performance machine tool accessories in seven other midwestern states: Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

The Whittemore Co. has been providing sales, technical, and marketing support services to the metalworking industry for over 100 years. Dave Zaval, President of The Whittemore Co., is looking forward to representing Lyndex-Nikken in Wisconsin: “From the start of our partnership with Lyndex-Nikken in 2019, we’ve been proud to be associated with them because we’re focused on the same thing: providing profitable solutions to metalworking challenges. There’s nothing better than being able to confidently offer high-quality and well-known products and then couple that with excellent management & an amazing support team like Lyndex-Nikken has, it’s a winning combination for everyone involved.”

Frank Fullone, Lyndex-Nikken’s General Manager, said, “We had been searching for some time for sales representation in the state of Wisconsin and had considered both direct and independent representation channels. After interviewing Mike Dulmes & Ryan Monahan from the Whittemore team, the choice was clear. We are very pleased to add them to the Lyndex-Nikken team and to expand our partnership with The Whittemore Co.”
