About the T & D Metal Products and Metal Fabrication
T&D Metal Products LLC was incorporated during May, 1951
by Otto Tauck and Howard Dittrich in Morengo, Illinois. Howard was
the visionary and idea person, while Otto became the financier.
Both people formed a great team to accomplish the creation of T
& D Metal.
T&D Metal went through many changes
and locations in the early years and finally settled in Watseka,
Illinois at a building (formerly owned by TRW) that had some manufacturing
equipment and the space T&D Metal would need to be a successful
operation. Howard Dittrich bought the building at auction and before
T&D Metals move to the Watseka location, Mr.Dittrich purchased Mr.Taucks
stock and became the sole owner of T&D and the business continues
today as a family run operation.
Roger Dittrich, Howard's son, virtually grew up in the
business and has a vast knowledge of all aspects relating to manufacturing
and sheet metal production costs and development. Roger first started
out as an tool & die apprentice while in high school and worked
in all the positions at T&D Metal during the years. In 1981 Roger
was promoted to General Manager after proving his hard work and
knowledge earned that position. Roger helped direct T&D Metal with
his father until 1985 when his father decided to retire and sell
the company to Roger. Thus, beginning the new chapter in the operation
with Roger as the owner and director.
Since then T&D Metal has increased its sales, quality and production.
Now, nearly 20 years later, Shane Dittrich (Roger's son) started
just the way Roger had by growing up in the business. He is 3rd
generation and is bringing new ideas and energy to T&D Metal as
the General Manager.
Hopefully, T&D Metal will also become a part of your family!
Give us a call and let us bring our years of family quality
business to your project as we have since 1951.
