Screen Machine Industries is now the parent company of Diamond Z of Caldwell, Idaho.
The deal, which was finalized on March 1, creates a strong partnership of two material processing companies – Screen Machine in crushing and screening and Diamond Z in chipping and grinding. Together, both companies aim to service the growing need for mobile equipment across a number of industries.
“Screen Machine and Diamond Z both have a strong history of product quality, innovation and customer service,” said Steve Peel, former CEO and owner of Diamond Z. “As we continued to get to know one another and discuss potential opportunities, it became clear this would be a great partnership.”
Screen Machine began in 1966 in Etna, Ohio, as a structural steel company and found its niche serving crushing and screening needs for the aggregate and coal industries in the Midwest. Now its machines are in service around the world.

Diamond Z was created with a focus on chipping and grinding and reached success as a result of its affiliation with Rule Steel, a structural steel manufacturing company. Its horizontal, enclosed, solid waste and tub grinders also are in service worldwide.
In Canada, Diamond Z’s products are carried by Frontline Machinery.
“We have a great opportunity to join our shared vision of providing the most durable and reliable products in our industries with our unmatched focus on customer service,” said Shane Terblanche, president and chief executive officer of Screen Machine.
“Add to that our shared company values and focus on people and culture, we are very excited to move forward together with Diamond Z and all of its employees, customers, suppliers and the community.”
Both Screen Machine and Diamond Z will continue to operate from their respective facilities in Etna, Ohio and Caldwell, Idaho.
The company foresees great opportunities to utilize its collective strength in several areas going forward.
