Shiloh Industries, Inc. provides light weighting and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) solutions to automotive, commercial vehicle and other industrial markets. The company delivers these solutions through design engineering and manufacturing of first operation blanks, engineered welded blanks, complex stampings, modular assemblies, and highly engineered aluminum die casting and machining components, as well as its patented ShilohCore acoustic laminate metal solution serving the body-in-white, emission, powertrain, structural and seating needs of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and Tier 1 customers. In addition, the company is a designer and engineer of precision tools and dies and welding and assembly equipment for use in its blanking, welded blank and stamping operations and for sale to OEMs, Tier I automotive suppliers and other industrial customers. The company's complex stampings and modular assemblies include components used in the structural and powertrain systems of a vehicle. Structural systems include body-in-white applications and structural underbody modules. Powertrain systems consist of deep draw components, such as oil pans and transmission pans. Additionally, the company provides various intermediate steel processing services, such as oiling, leveling, cutting-to-length, slitting, edge trimming of hot and cold-rolled steel coils and inventory control services for automotive and steel industry customers. The company's highly engineered aluminum die casting and machined components include thin casting technology, as well as thick-walled squeeze casting processing to offer aluminum lightweighting solutions to vehicle systems. The company has 14 wholly owned subsidiaries at locations in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Mexico. In December 2012, the company, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, acquired certain assets of Atlantic Tool & Die - Alabama, Inc.

In August 2013, the company, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, acquired certain assets pursuant to its Asset Purchase Agreement with Contech Castings, LLC (Contech) and its subsidiary Contech Casting Real Estate Holdings, LLC (Contech Real Estate). Contech is engaged in the business of die casting and machining motor vehicle parts and further producing engineered high pressure aluminum die cast and machined parts for the motor vehicle industry. Products The company produces engineered welded blanks using both the mash seam resistance and laser weld processes. The engineered welded blanks that are produced consist of two or more sheets of steel of the same or different material grade, thickness or coating welded together into a single flat panel. The primary distinctions between mash seam resistance and laser welding are weld bead appearance and cost. The company's complex stamping operations produce engineered stampings and modular assemblies. It produces complex stamped parts using precision single stage, progressive, deep draw and transfer dies, which the company either designs and manufactures or sources from third parties. Some stamping operations also provide value-added processes, such as welding, assembly and painting capabilities. The company's complex stampings and modular assemblies are principally used as components for body-in-white, powertrain, seat frames and other structural body components for automobiles. The company produces steel blanks in its blanking operations. These blanks, which are used principally by manufacturers in the automobile, heavy truck, and lawn and garden industries, are used by the company's automotive and heavy truck customers for automobile exterior and structural components, including fenders, hoods, doors and side panels, and heavy truck wheel rims and brake components and by the company's lawn and garden customers for lawn mower decks. The company produces complex machined aluminum castings for the automotive and commercial vehicle sector using the high pressure or squeeze cast technology. Both of these processes are performed in injection molding type machines that support
