Three Forging Companies Combine
A. Finkl & Sons, Composite Forgings and Sorel Forge are uniting to form Finkl Steel, a subsidiary of the Schmolz + Bickenbach Group. This change equips the new company with improved manufacturing efficiencies, increased product availability and an enhanced global presence. The newly formed Finkl Steel has 18 metallurgists on staff and extensive expertise and technological capabilities, with manufacturing facilities in Chicago, Detroit and Quebec. The three complementary plants enable Finkl Steel to offer broader product solutions to its customer base as well as best-in-class lead times and delivery performance. Finkl Steel is a leading global supplier of forging-die steels, plastic-mold steels, die-casting tool steels and custom open-die forgings.
"By combining three strong independent businesses into one, Finkl Steel leverages the strengths of each to provide better customer service and product availability, making us more competitive worldwide," said Mark Shirley, CEO of Finkl Steel.
