Screen Machine Industries LLC, Etna, Ohio, a manufacturer of crushing and screening machines, has acquired Diamond Z, a manufacturer of horizontal grinders, tub grinders and other related products. Together the companies will be able to service the growing need for mobile material processing machines across a variety of industries.
“Screen Machine and Diamond Z both have a strong history of product quality, innovation and customer service,” said Steve Peel, former CEO and owner of Diamond Z. “As we continued to get to know one another and discuss potential opportunities, it became clear this would be a great partnership.”
“We have a great opportunity to join our shared vision of providing the most durable and reliable products in our industries with our unmatched focus on customer service,” said Shane Terblanche, president and CEO of Screen Machine. “Add to that our shared company values and focus on people and culture, we are very excited to move forward together with Diamond Z and all of its employees, customers, suppliers and the community.”
Screen Machine began in 1966 as a structural steel company and found its niche serving crushing and screening needs for the aggregates and coal industries in the Midwest. Now its machines are in service around the world. Diamond Z, Caldwell, Idaho, was founded with a clear focus on chipping and grinding and has enjoyed success as a result of its affiliation with Rule Steel, a structural steel manufacturing company. Its machines are in service around the world as well.
Both Screen Machine and Diamond Z will continue to operate as they have for years from their respective facilities. The company foresees many opportunities to utilize their collective strengths going forward.
