Kinetic Die Casting April 2023

All of our customers are manufacturers. This year is challenging to many manufacturing companies. Both good and bad challenges. A few of our manufacturing company customers are struggling to stay in business. A few of our customers are faced with higher production and delivery demands than ever before. At Kineticdc, we are not different from other manufacturing companies. We are having negative challenges with unusually high natural gas costs, difficulty in finding and training qualified labor workers as well as experienced die casting managers. We are also struggling with our cash flow as a result of all the negative issues above. The good challenge is that we are headed in 2023 to the best manufacturing year ever by working extra hours and more production shifts for our customers’ increased demand.

Thank you for trusting us to make your production parts of aluminum and zinc die casting parts.

Natural Gas Cost Increases January 2023

Kinetic Die Casting Company’s recent SoCal Gas bill has more than tripled (300%+) in the last 12 months. On 01/23/23 our natural gas cost from Southern California Gas Company increased to $3.75 per Therm from $1.15 per Therm cost in the same time period last year, 2022. Our utilities cost has increased over the last year but this month was the largest increase of over 200% and the largest cost we have ever experienced. We use a lot of natural gas to melt our die casting metal alloys in our manufacturing process. This Southern California Gas Company natural gas cost increase is the largest gas cost increase I have seen, as far as I can remember, in almost 30 years of owning Kinetic Die Casting Company. I have no choice but to include a gas energy surcharge on all Kinetic Die Casting Company invoices starting today. That gas surcharge will be updated monthly as our new gas bill arrives on the 22nd of each month.
