Deshler acquired AWT, a stamping company, in 2003. This allowed Deshler to directly produce welded assemblies and rods, rather than relying on subcontractors.
In 1989, Deshler Group formed AMI, a company that developed an industry-first software solution supporting nation-wide tire inventory and logistics for Ford Motor Company dealerships.
In 1984, the company built a new factory home for Amanda Bent Bolt in Logan, Ohio. By 1988, Amanda had expanded into other industries, parts, and techniques, doubling the factory in size.
In 1978, Deshler purchased and renamed Amanda Bent Bolt, a u-bolt and rod company now doing business as Amanda Manufacturing.
In the 1970s, Feblo pioneered warehousing and distribution software systems written specifically for the automotive industry.
In 1968, Deshler Group, with partial financing from Feblo, acquired Claude Sintz.
Founded in 1948, Feblo International, LLC started in gasket kitting and assembly. It later moved to packaging for Ford Motor Company in the 1960s and GM in 1999.
