A meeting on alternative parts and parts testing and to address concerns over substandard parts between Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Congressman Steve Cohen and Michael O’Neal, president of Diamond Standard Parts was held July 20 on Capitol Hill.
During the discussion, a sidebar question was initiated by Speier: "What do we need to do to get you to bring more jobs to the USA?"
"I’m pleased to announce in response to the good Congresswoman’s question, that while attending CIC in Chicago last week a presentation highlighted the glaring need for a quality aftermarket provider of radiator supports, and we will look to answer that need on U.S. soil," said O’Neal.
California, Ohio and Tennessee are the three areas under consideration for the facility, and more details we be released later, Diamond Standard says.
Diamond Standard companies are based in the U.S., and manufacturing and production facilities are located in Memphis, Tenn., Columbus, Ohio, Troy, Mich., Lawton, Okla., and Taiwan, ROC.
