Shiloh Industries Inc., Valley City, Ohio, has acquired Warren, Mich.-based Radar Industries. The purchase leverages Radar Industries’ tooling technologies and stamping capabilities, expanding Shiloh’s existing manufacturing capacity to include Central Mexico and Michigan.
“Radar Industries is a perfect addition to Shiloh’s strategic lightweighting portfolio,” said Ramzi Hermiz, president and CEO, Shiloh Industries. “To broaden our best-in-class portfolio even further, we actively seek solutions that address industry pinch points, such as large tonnage stamping capacity and tool & die capability. This acquisition is another way for us to better service our growing global customer base.”
Shiloh is a global and Tier 1 supplier of lightweighting solutions to the automotive, commercial vehicle and other industrial markets. The company offers steel, steel alloy, aluminum and magnesium products including die cast and machined components. The company has locations across Asia, Europe and North America with approximately 3,000 total employees.
“Radar Industries has been a leader in metal forming and assembly, production design and engineering services,” said Dave Zmyslowski, president, Radar Industries. “The acquisition adds to our strong technology position, customer diversification and geographic needs by complementing our existing stamping, laser welding, aluminum and magnesium die casting footprint.”
The acquisition includes three metal stamping plants, two in Warren, Mich., and the other in Celaya, Mexico. The deal includes a sales and technical center, also in Warren. Radar is comprised of approximately 325 workers in the U.S. and Mexico.
