Another California manufacturing company is closing down, Rangers Die Casting Company, 10828 S. Alameda St., Lynwood, CA 90262. Rangers has been in business since 1946, they will be closing by the end of September 2016.

All of us in NADCA (North American Die Casting Association) chapter 30 will miss the Rangers Die Casting staff and their assistance. Rangers was active in every one of the local chapter 30 NADCA activities. They worked tirelessly to make the NADCA Chapter 30 activities a success. I will miss working with and talking to the staff from Ranger’s at our NADCA chapter 30 board meetings, the Annual Installation Dinner, the Annual Day at the Races in Santa Anita, as well as our annual golf tournament.

Good luck guys in your future endeavors!

Two of those companies have either sold or closed. Bringing the total company count to 18 remaining die casting companies in Southern California. Four of those remaining 18 die casting companies are for sale or are looking to close down due to illness or retirement.

Sadly, one of our competitors has closed their operations. Another California Die Casting Manufacturing Company is gone.

Art Mold Die Casting Company 11872 Sheldon Street Sun Valley, CA 91352 is closed. ArtMold started producing die castings in 1978. Nearly 40 years in business here in Southern California. Their commitment to excellence and concern for competitive pricing was an integral part of their growth. Sadly, their demise came at the hands of foreign competitors. They could no longer maintain their high standards of quality while paying increased costs for doing business in California. Art Mold still tried to compete with die casting prices from countries that do not have a minimum wage law, competitors that do not pay insurance costs, they do not pay holiday pay for employees or pay employees for sick days.

Now about my company, Kinetic Die Casting Company.

We are still going strong. My company does an excellent job taking care of my employees with fair wages, paid vacations, paid sick days, and holiday pay. In return, my customers get excellent service, the best product quality and the willingness of my employees to deliver products on time. A small price to pay for world class results. As a small American manufacturer, I keep my product prices as low as possible to compete globally. I work with customers by giving them discounts on prices whenever I can. We are local, customers can order and get products in one or two days. We are willing to produce low production quantities of parts. Our quality is the best quality you can find. We are available by email or phone at any time. We have no hidden environmental fees or setup fees. We expedite our products for free if our customers make a mistake logistically. I am helping the local economy by keeping manufacturing jobs here in California.

Yes, we are taking over some of the die casting work from ArtMold Die Casting Company (AMDC). We are 15 minutes away from AMDC. I have agreed with the owner of AMDC that I will honor the prices they have with their existing customers. He also agreed to give me any special tips necessary to make your parts.
