Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, RMD, Baileigh designs and manufactures Baileigh-branded metalworking machinery.

We will continue to support the growth of the Baileigh brand while leveraging JPW’s supply chain and customer service capabilities to improve the overall value proposition to our collective customer base.”
