Bayloff Combines Two Divisions
into One Metalforming Company
Tuesday, September 26, 2006
Bayloff Die & Machine Co., a metal stamping and die manufacturer based in Belleville, MI, has combined its two separate operating divisions into one new company. Bayloff along with Target Stamped Products, Kinsman, OH, will now operate as a single entity called Bayloff Stamped Products. The new, larger company provides a variety of engineering, tooling and stamping services primarily to the automotive industry.
“Individually we supplied parts to many of the same customers, but on different programs, explains Brian Bayer, general manager of the new company. “By combining our engineering and tool-making capabilities, and with our two plants, we offer everything our customers need from one supplier.”
Bayloff Die & Stamping was formed in 1948, evolving into a supplier to numerous Tier One automotive manufacturers. Target Stamped Products, also founded in 1948, was acquired by Bayloff’s owners in 1997 and specializes in deep-drawn metal stampings and engineering services for the automotive industry.
Bayloff Stamped Products, with approximately 200 employees in two plants, provides engineering, inhouse tool-making, deep-draw stamping, and parts assembly and finishing services to automotive and consumer products manufacturing companies across North America.
