Metaldyne Performance Group (MPG), a provider of PM components for use in powertrain and suspension applications, plans to consolidate its portfolio of metal-forming brands.

These include HHI, Grede, Cloyes, Metaldyne, Jernberg, Impact Forge, NovoCast and FormTech.

‘Our business was formed nearly two years ago through a combination of three metal-forming technology manufacturing companies,’ said MPG CEO George Thanopoulos.  ‘Integration has gone exceptionally well and exactly as planned.  As such, we can now take the next step to brand ourselves solely as MPG.’ 

Reorganizing to one brand reflects one unified organization, although all the legal entities and reporting segments in the company will remain intact, the company said.
