MK Diamond HistoryMK Diamond Products celebrates 150 years.Since 1868, MK Diamond Products has been an American, family-owned and operated company. Our earliest roots from the late 19th century gave us an artisan’s foundation in quality craftsmanship. “Our family business was started in San Francisco in 1868 by Joseph Musto, a fifth-generation Italian stone-cutter. Musto, whose ancestors were master craftsmen, brought the skills of his forefathers to his new home in America and established the Musto Steam Marble Mill. The trademark of the business was its pledge to quality work and service. The Musto family believed that good enough was never really good enough,” stated Robert J. Delahaut, President of MK Diamond Products, Inc.In 1919 Joseph’s son Clarence relocated the company to Los Angeles. By 1949, the newly named Musto-Kennan Company had gained a reputation as a manufacturer of top-quality diamond tools to cut marble faster and more efficiently.Robert J. Delahaut’s leadership began in 1974.He expanded the company by creating a line of precision power cutting tile saws that has grown to include masonry, concrete, and coring equipment. Now his son, vice President Brian Delahaut, continues the family tradition.“After 150 years our company knows what makes a company endure – a reliable product, fair pricing,and honorable business practices. At MK Diamond weare constantlyupdating andimproving our manufacturing plant, in Torrance, CA, to keep pace with the industry’s changesand challenges.
