Dana Saad’s origins began in the 1960’s when Michael H. Saad, a successful retail shoe store owner, set out to develop a new product. This invention was an automated shoe sizing machine, the first of its kind. Pursuit of this new idea led Michael to partner with Homer Dana for its design. Homer Dana, a well-recognized professor and engineer at Washington Sate University, became an integral part of the endeavor which led to the creation of the Dana Saad Shoes Sizing Machine and the Dana Saad Company. The Dana Saad Shoe Sizer would go on to serve a domestic and global market including places like Canada, Germany, Singapore, Mexico, Great Britain, and others. In the early 1980’s The Dana Saad Company expanded their business into a new manufacturing process for the design of new products. This new process was plastic injection molding. As the company kept growing Michael Saad’s son’s Mike Jr. and Patrick, took the helm, and helped make Dana Saad Company a market leader and trusted name in the custom plastic injection molding world. Dana Saad continues to provide world class service and plastic parts to large OEMs and small business alike. Their deep experience and commitment to customers’ demands has placed them at the forefront of the industry for the past 50 years. In August of 2021 James Cote’ and Patrick Vollmer bought Dana Saad to help bring even more industry experience, tooling, and molding capabilities to their customers.
