Sunnen Products Co. is relocating its BTA Heller division to the Sunnen headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. The move from Troy, Michigan, will be completed by March 31, 2019, with key personnel making the move.

Sunnen’s acquisition of BTA Heller last year added the latter’s deep-hole tooling and primary hole generation systems to the former’s honing system lineup. The move to Missouri is expected to facilitate further development of tooling, systems and processes, as the companies build on natural synergies to offer single-source bore creation and finishing solutions.

“Our companies complement each other very well,” says Chris Miltenberger, president and COO of Sunnen. “No other deep hole/BTA company has Sunnen’s global presence for customer, technical and post-sale support. The transfer of knowledge between the two companies has already created unique value propositions, and Sunnen’s strong sales and service network will deliver this expertise to our customers.”

Sunnen’s core technical competencies include automated and manual honing and lapping systems, custom system development and integration, abrasives, tooling, lubricants, and gaging. The BTA Heller acquisition expanded Sunnen’s industry honing expertise to include tooling for initial hole creation and other complementary bore sizing and finishing processes. Sunnen recently introduced the new SHD series skiving and roller burnishing system with tooling engineered and supplied by BTA Heller.
