The third Monday in February is Presidents’ Day. Washington’s Birthday was a United States federal holiday.
President George Washington
This holiday, celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, our first President of the United States. Now, this day is known as Presidents Day, and is often an occasion to remember all the U.S. presidents, not just George Washington’s actual birthday, February 22 or Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is February 12th. The term “Presidents’ Day” used to change the holiday into a day honoring multiple American presidents.

Recently, the February holiday is a day in which many retail stores, especially furniture stores and car dealerships, hold discount sales. Until the late 1980s, banks and corporate businesses closed on this day, similar to present corporate and bank practices on Memorial Day or Christmas Day. With the late 1980s advertising push to rename the holiday, more retail businesses are staying open during the holiday each year, and, as on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day. Many colleges and universities hold regular classes and operations on Presidents’ Day. Most U.S. Postal Service delivery services offer regular service on the day.

Happy Presidents’ Day

Feb 2, 2017 – This day is celebrated each year on February 2nd. Groundhog Day was a traditional day used to forecast the remaining winter weather.

Happy Groundhog Day

According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks. This fun tradition does not accurately predict the weather, but fun, all the same.

Our customers, all of them manufacturers, are on the leading edge of any change in our American economy. Most of our customers are preparing for growth rather than recession in 2017. Kinetic Die Casting Company is preparing and we are taking steps to handle the growth we expect to see in 2017.

On Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, Toyota said it will add 400 jobs. Toyota on Tuesday announced plans to invest $600 million and add 400 new jobs to its auto plant in Princeton, Ind. The project, which includes retooling as well as new equipment and advanced technology, is scheduled to begin in late 2019. It will enable the southwestern Indiana facility to manufacture an additional 40,000 additional Highlander SUVs per year. The Princeton facility churned out a record 400,000 Highlanders last year, company officials said.

“The Highlander has been a great vehicle for our plant and we are excited to deliver even more of them to our loyal customers,” Toyota Indiana president Millie Marshall said in a statement.

Numerous auto parts manufacturers and automakers made investments in U.S. plants in recent months in an effort to bolster production of trucks and SUVs, which have higher profit margins and are selling well amid low gas prices and improved fuel efficiency.

Some vehicle makers are also shifting production of lower-margin small cars into Mexico, which drew repeated criticism from President Donald Trump. The Princeton project is part of $10 billion in planned investments in Toyota’s U.S. plants over the next five years.

Jan 23, 2017 – Kineticdc loses wait time for die casting parts. Kinetic Die Casting Company will ship most production die casting parts in less than 4 weeks. Other die casting companies are trapped in the old way of manufacturing die casting parts and are shipping parts in 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 14 weeks and even more than 16 weeks.

How much is the longer wait time costing their customers? If a product needs to be shipped this month but the die casting parts will not be ready for several weeks, that means lost income for the manufacturing company. Kinetic Die Casting Company solves that wait time problem for our customers.

Many times a new customer will send us a die casting mold from our competitor and we will ship parts in less than two weeks. If you need parts fast, send us your die casting tooling, we will make a special effort to get you your parts in less than two weeks.
