Sko-Die Inc. (Morton Grove, Illinois), a manufacturer of custom steel laminations and heavy-gauge metal stampings, has acquired the fineblanking and metal stamping business of Harig Manufacturing Corp. (Niles, Illinois), a manufacturer of precision parts for the automotive, appliance, power tool, aerospace and controls industries.

Patrick Steininger, president of Sko-Die, says that the acquisition will “enable us to expand and diversify the manufacturing industry segments that we currently serve. We welcome Harig’s customers as they join our valued customer base.”

Harig’s fineblanking and metal stamping operations have now been incorporated into the Sko-Die facility in Morton Grove. The equipment now installed at Sko-Die includes four Feintool fineblanking presses, two 160-ton and two 250-ton presses. Two deburring systems have also been moved into the facility, and two of Harig’s experienced operators have joined the Sko-Die staff.
