CERATIZIT S.A. has acquired all shares of Xceliron Corp.

Xceliron, based in Chatsworth, CA, is a round tool manufacturer focused on providing special solid carbide tools for aerospace and automotive industries in the U.S.   

“With its high-quality specialty products, the Xceliron portfolio is an ideal complement to the standard products from our Sacramento site and an important building block for our global growth strategy,” said Mirko Merlo, President Americas at CERATIZIT.

Xceliron’s strong foothold in the aerospace industry provides CERATIZIT with a launch pad to tap into new customer groups. And its expertise in special tools will open new opportunities to offer CERATIZIT customers in North America a more comprehensive range of tooling solutions in the future.  

Management Stays on Board

The forthcoming integration process will be actively supported by the company’s founders.

“We are very pleased that Randy Jones and Ric DiOrio will continue in the successful management of Xceliron and act as Co-Managing Directors,” commented CERATIZIT Executive Board Spokesman, Andreas Lackner on the closing of the transaction.

“We are thrilled to have found the right partner in CERATIZIT to take Xceliron to the next level and build on our heritage. Long-term thinking and creativity are two of the values that have also been at the core of our business over the past 33 years,” Ric DiOrio and Randy Jones said in a joint statement.

Xceliron’s reputation in the aerospace sector complements CERATIZIT’s commitment to quality and innovation. CERATIZIT says this synergy positions it to be an industry leader in providing aerospace-grade tooling solutions.

“This acquisition strategically positions us to better serve our customers with an expanded range of custom tooling solutions, specifically tailored to meet the demanding requirements of the aerospace industry. We are eager to leverage Xceliron’s expertise and reputation for precision to drive innovation and excellence in round tools,” Merlo added

Both sides have agreed not to disclose the financial details of the transaction.
