OSG Tap & Die Inc., a Glendale Heights, Ill.-based manufacturer of taps, drills, endmills, dies and indexable cutting tools, has changed its name to OSG USA Inc. The corporate name change was made to better reflect the products and services OSG markets domestically, according to the company.
"It was important to change our name because of the tooling products we offer to the U.S. market beyond taps and dies," said Mike Grantham, president of OSG USA. "Our customers have come to know us for all of the products we offer, so it was time to remove the ‘Tap and Die' from our name."
