The Diamond Match Company was the largest manufacturer of matches in the United States of America by the late nineteenth century. It was established in 1881. Its founder was Ohio Columbus Barber, and the business was headquartered in Akron, Ohio. The Diamond Match Company took its name from the shape of the match's head that the company produced. In 1881, Barber's match business, the Barber Match Company, united together with several other match producers to create the Diamond Match Company.
