Walter Surface Technologies  (Windsor, Conn.) is pleased to announce its acquisition of Drillco (Baton Rouge, La.), a quality brand offering premium cutting tools, and Triumph Twist Drill (Chisholm, Minn.), a leading manufacturer of tooling and drilling solutions.

Through these acquisitions, Walter is expanding its cutting tool product offering to metalworkers, complementing its high-end metalworking products.

“We are very excited to welcome both Drillco and Triumph to the Walter family,” says Marc-André Aubé, CEO of Walter. “Drillco brings a solid distribution network and product expertise that will allow us to continue our mission to help our customers work better. This is complemented by Triumph’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility of quality cutting tools. Walter is always looking to provide solutions that answer the needs and challenges facing end-users in the metalworking industry. Now, with these two acquisitions, we can help our customers to be more productive with durable products for a broad range of applications.”

“We saw in this opportunity the perfect alignment of both products and values,” says Sandra “Missy” Woodard, Drillco’s CFO. “We are proud to see Drillco adding its cutting tool solutions to Walter’s renowned and robust offering.”

“The fit is right and we could not be more proud to be a part of the Walter team,” adds Scott Allison, president of Triumph Twist Drill.

Following this transaction, both Drillco and Triumph will continue to operate under their own respective brands. The transaction is effective immediately, and activities for both customers and suppliers remain unchanged.
