Tyrolit Strengthens US Market Position With Acquisition of Acme Abrasives

Published: 28/12, 2023

At the end of September 2023, the Tyrolit Group acquired Acme Abrasives, a specialized abrasives manufacturer and provider based in Michigan. 

Acme Abrasives is one of the leading manufacturers in North America for hot pressed grinding wheels. As Tyrolit’s seventh manufacturing plant in the US, the acquisition is a strategic move that will further expand the company’s product portfolio for the steel and foundry as well as the rail industry. Tyrolit will integrate Acme wheels in its portfolio of grinding and specialty abrasive solutions for industrial clients.

“We have built a successful global economic base that allows us to further pursue our strategic direction of business activities,” says Tyrolit CEO Thomas Friess. “The further expansion of our portfolio – especially for crucial industries like steel, foundry, and rail – strengthens our operational competitiveness.”

Matthias Kuprian, Tyrolit executive board member for metal industries, notes that the addition of Acme Abrasives enables the company to further utilize its global position. 

“Acme has a longstanding commitment to quality and efficiency and therefore perfectly aligns with our values,” Kuprian says. “We are excited about the opportunity to serve our partners even better and offer high-quality products and services for a wide variety of specific needs.”
