As a united organization, DISA Group and Wheelabrator Group employ 2,500 people across five continents and together serve such diverse industries as aerospace, automotive, energy, foundry, medical components, rail, and marine.

First, we will focus on lowering their manufacturing cost-per-part, and, second, by providing a longer component life. The combined DISA and Wheelabrator teams present a tremendous advantage for our customers.”
