Over the years, its product lines expanded through acquisitions. Product lines included tubular fishing rods, golf club shafts, and ski poles. During World War II, the company manufactured steel shell casings and a newly designed bayonet. The company's name was changed in 1949 to True Temper reflecting the newly developed process of tempering steel. True Temper was acquired by Allegheny-Ludlum Steel Co. of Pittsburgh in 1967 and in 1981, after the company was divided into True Temper Hardware and True Temper Sports, its headquarters were moved to Pennsylvania. In 1990, the Hardware division was purchased by Huffy Corporation. In 1981, True Temper acquired Jackson Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of wheelbarrows and carts. In addition, True Temper acquired Meaford Steel Products, a leading Canadian wheelbarrow manufacturer, in 1996, and SuperLight, a leading aluminum rake manufacturer, in 1997. n 1999, the company was acquired by USI and merged with the Ames Company to form Ames True Temper.
