American Trim, a privately held company based in Lima, Ohio, and a leading provider of metal components for the appliance, heavy truck and automotive industries, has agreed to acquire Angell-Demmel North America (ADNA), a key provider of metal, automotive trim parts that has a design facility in
Dayton, Ohio and a manufacturing facility in Lebanon.
“This acquisition is an important step in our strategy to grow our business and provide OEMs a dependable supply of high quality, innovative aluminum trim products,” said Tim Hawk, chief executive officer of American Trim.
The leadership of both companies emphasized that their customers were their primary concern, and for that reason the transition would be seamless.
“The design and fabrication capabilities of ADNA will harmoniously augment and extend our current capabilities and accelerate our growth in the automotive trim market,” Hawk said. “We are not just acquiring buildings and machines, we are acquiring a very talented team of people who are experts in the design and manufacture of decorative automotive trim.”
Hawk said the two organizations would remain separate entities for the foreseeable future, and a focused exchange of expertise and technologies would be the chief benefits of this new arrangement.
