Mereen-Johnson, LLC has announced the acquisition of Diehl Machines, a Wabash, Indiana, manufacturer of industrial woodworking equipment.
“We believe the acquisition of Diehl Machines gives us the opportunity to add a complimentary line of products to our portfolio,” said Paul Wilmes, CEO of Mereen-Johnson. “We also see great potential for growth with new products and innovation from the Diehl line.”
Mereen-Johnson also manufactures a line of heavy-duty industrial production machinery, primarily geared to the wood industry, but increasing used in the cutting of composites, plastics, aluminum and many other materials.
“Like Mereen-Johnson, Diehl has a history going back over 100 years and is well-known in the industry for manufacturing high quality, long lasting machinery,” said Wilmes. “As a result, we intend to keep the Diehl name on the line of products we are acquiring as well as develop plans for growing it in the future.”
