His sales experience in the stone industry will help us better serve our end-users and distributors,” said Peter Hauser, VP of Sales Diamut America Stone Division. “We are looking forward to continuing to grow our business with Ronnie and our new redressing and manufacturing facility here in Charlotte. Our ultimate goal for 2019 is to help more companies get the best ROI on their tooling and increase their production while maintaining the highest quality in their operations.”

For more than 30 years, Diamut has manufactured a complete range of diamond tools for working stone, glass and synthetic materials, designed for use on the majority of the machines on the market. In recent years, the variety of products Diamut offers has expanded to include tooling for machines ranging from CNC routers to inline and 5-axis machines, as well as edge polishers and bridge saws.
