WIXOM, MI — Three Detroit-area tool manufacturing companies have merged under the new name Silver Hawk Precision. Silver Hawk Precision will manufacture specialty tools for automotive services and other manufacturing customers.
Headquartered in Wixom, Mich., the three companies which merged late last year were Carb-R-All and PCD of America, both of Wixom, and Dia-Tool Corp. of Farmington Hills, Mich.
Leo Charpentier, former vice president of operations of EWAG Corp. in North Kingstown, RI, has been named president of the new company. Daniel Diskin, former owner of Dia-Tool, has been named vice president, sales and marketing.
Paul Abbott, formerly director of manufacturing for Advanced Cutting Tools of Windsor, Ontario, has been named director of manufacturing. Shelby Gibson will head the new sales team at Silver Hawk. Gibson has more than 35 years of experience in the industry.
“The combined new company has more capabilities than the sum of all its parts, in terms of metalworking experience, manufacturing capacity, customer service and the ability to create cost-saving solutions,” said Charpentier. “We are large enough to service the product needs of our customers, but small enough to be highly responsive and easy to do business with.”
The company specializes in specialty, custom-order tooling such as milling cutters, PCD- and PCBN-tipped round tools, PCD and PCBN inserts, solid carbide round tooling and natural diamond products.
The company currently operates business out of its corporate office and manufacturing facility in Wixom, Mich.
