Screen Machine Industries, which makes portable crushing and screening equipment, acquired a chipping and grinding manufacturer in Diamond Z.

The acquisition will allow both companies to meet mobile equipment needs across an array of industries.

“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,” says 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.”

Both Screen Machine and Diamond Z will continue to operate from their respective facilities in Etna, Ohio, and Caldwell, Idaho.

“Screen Machine and Diamond Z both have a strong history of product quality, innovation and customer service,” says 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.”

Screen Machine began in 1966 as a structural steel company, establishing a niche serving crushing and screening needs for the aggregate and coal industries in the Midwest. Now, its machines are in service around the world.

According to Screen Machine, Diamond Z 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. Diamond Z machines are also in service around the world.
