Diehl Steel Now Under Hitachi UmbrellaJanuary 1, 2016
Diehl Steel Co., Inc., has been acquired by Hitachi Metals Ltd., Tokyo, Japan, and has been renamed Diehl Tool Steel, Inc.
“The resources that now will be available to our team will allow us to better serve our cold-work tool-steel customers,” says Mike Sheehan, president and chief operating officer of Diehl Tool Steel, “and will also pave the way for us to offer hot-work tool-steel solutions for diecasting and forging applications.”
The Diehl acquisition “greatly enhances our presence in North America, and will accelerate our plans to expand the capabilities we have to offer customers at Hitachi Metals,” says Tom Bell, product group head of Hitachi Metals America, LLC.
Officials note that there will be no interruption of service, and Diehl customers will continue to work with their existing sales and support teams.
