Dynacast is excited to announce that as of December 30th, 2016 we have completed the acquisition of Taurus ’80, a precision zinc die casting company. Taurus ’80 is headquartered in Grosso, Italy with additional locations in Rockford, Illinois, USA and Bizerte, Tunisia.
Taurus ’80 specializes in high-precision conventional zinc die casting and has been providing quality service since 1980. Their fully integrated production cycle—from engineering to secondary operations—has allowed Taurus ‘80 to work with some of the largest customers in the automotive and hardware industries. Along with their engineering expertise, Taurus adds over 60 additional die casting machines and an entire line of secondary operations to an already vast Dynacast footprint.
“We believe the addition of Taurus ’80 is the right next step for the growth of our company and is a testament to the passion and dedication by which the Dynacast team has delivered on our mission to provide the highest quality precision components to our customers around the world,” said Simon Newman, President and CEO of Dynacast. “This acquisition will deliver significant and immediate value to our customers and further our efforts in innovation to offer our customers the best business solutions.”
Dynacast works with organizations all over the world, helping bring their ideas to life with the highest quality precision engineered metal components on the planet. Customers can come from virtually any industry—consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, or any other where only the very best is good enough. And each benefits from our pioneering the techniques and technologies that have redefined the industry. We are very excited to see where 2017 takes us and we cannot wait to share our experiences with our customers and employees.
