As a young man, Edward Daniel envisioned building a company to manufacture hardware for the marine industry.  The Edward W. Daniel Co. became a reality in 1921 when he opened a manufacturing and distribution center in Cleveland to serve the Great Lakes marine Industry.

By the 1930s, the company began supplying other industries while developing patents for elevator rail clips, fiberglass reinforced yokes and hand held safety hooks.

In 1979, Edward W. Daniel Co. expanded operations to Chattanooga, TN, adding a forging plant to support the finish machining operations from the Cleveland facility.

In Chattanooga, the company’s “Diamond D” trademark was created.
