Industrial Magnetics, Inc. Acquires Clamp Manufacturing Co.

For Immediate Release: Posted On 2/12/2019 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (Boyne City, MI) announces the acquisition of Clamp Manufacturing Co. (South El Monte, CA).

Since its inception in 1973, Clamp Manufacturing Co. has been a family-owned business whose unique, Made in The USA products have long been recognized for their quality, durability and dependability. Over the last 45 years, a diverse range of industries have come to appreciate the reliability of the KANT-TWIST® Clamp and NO-MAR® Hammer product lines in thousands of metalworking, welding, assembly, and general manufacturing applications.

Kant-Twist® is a multi-purpose clamp, combining the best features of ordinary “C” and parallel clamps, with free-floating jaws that adjust to un-parallel surfaces. The unique design will not “walk off-center” when pressure is applied against the jaw, because there is no unsupported screw or loose pad. It provides freedom of movement and eliminates the distorting and twisting action associated with conventional clamping devices, as well as providing three different gripping surfaces. All clamps are of rugged, industrial-duty construction, with copper-plated jaws and screws to resist weld splatter. Kant-Twist® clamps weigh approximately half as much as comparable “C” clamps.

According to Dennis O’Leary, Industrial Magnetics’ CBDO, “The acquisition of Clamp Manufacturing Co. marks IMI’s next step in expanding our workholding and general manufacturing product offerings. With an eye towards expanded SKU’s and a concentration on speed-to-market, we can provide a larger and more diverse product offering to meet our channel partner and end-user expectations. Clamp Manufacturing’s footprint, excellent reputation and well-established relationships provide a unique opportunity for us to grow the Kant-Twist and No-Mar brands in conjunction with IMI’s current offerings.”
