Screen Machine has acquired Diamond Z

Copper Run advised Screen Machine Industries LLC – an innovative American manufacturer of portable machinery dedicated to material crushing, screening, recycling and stockpiling. Founded in 1966, our corporate headquarters is located in Etna, Ohio, USA. Copper Run presented Diamond Z as a proprietary deal as part of its buy side process.

“Crane is excited to grow Screen Machine with a complementary business located in a new geography,” said Chad Utrup, CFO of Crane Group and Board Member of Screen Machine Industries. “This acquisition is a great example of our commitment to growing all of the Crane Group companies both organically and through an acquisition plan.”

The partnership — Screen Machine in crushing and screening, Diamond Z in chipping and grinding — enables both companies to service the growing need for mobile equipment across a number of industries.

“Andy, Jason, and their team exceeded our expectations both from a deal flow and an organizational standpoint. We look forward to working with Copper Run again in the future,” Chad said.
