MK Diamond Company Closed

Kinetic Die Casting Company started doing business and making die casting parts for MK Diamond Products in 2016, when Art Mold Die Casting Company Closed.

Then a few months later in 2017, Cox Die Casting Company closed. Cox Die Casting Company Closed. We received the majority of the die casting tooling from Cox Die Casting Company. I could not get anyone on the phone the last few weeks I have tried calling. I was getting a recording about the line is disconnected. When I called the 800 number, it went immediately to a busy signal. I sent numerous unanswered emails to many of the people I knew there, with no response. I drove down to their place of business on 4/09/24, and the building is closed down. I could not get anyone to answer the door. I found online details (January 2024 and February 2024) about a MK Diamond equipment auction where everything in the company was listed for sale. I also found a legal eviction process from their building, it is sadly clear that MK Diamond Products Company is Closed.

MK Diamond Company History Remembered. San Francisco, circa 1860 – MK Diamond Products business started in San Francisco in 1868 by Joseph Musto, a fifth-generation Italian stone-cutter and tile-setter, whose ancestors were known as master craftsmen. He brought the skills of his forefathers to his new home in America and established the Musto Steam Marble Mill. The trademark of the business was its pledge to quality work and service. The Musto family believed that, good enough was never really good enough. It is from this work ethic that MK Diamond continues its unrelenting pursuit to producing quality products.

MK Products in Los Angeles, circa 1940 – In late 1919, Joseph’s son, Clarence, came to Los Angeles. By 1949, the newly named Musto-Keenan Company had gained a reputation for making top quality diamond tools to cut marble and tile faster and more efficiently. Beginning in 1977, and under the leadership of Robert J. Delahaut, the company moved in a direction that has established itself as a world leader for precision power cutting tools and diamond blades. We are committed to making our products and services the benchmark by which the rest of the industry will measure itself.

MK Diamond Products had a lot of off shore competition so they had a difficult time financially. MK Diamond always gave feedback on their production part’s needs and communicated very well with our company, Kinetic Die Casting Company. We will miss the MK Diamond company and the people that worked there.
