Bucy Die Casting Company Closing

As of December 15, 2020 Bucy Die Casting Company will close their doors one final time. Bucy started doing business in 1943, and Bucy was incorporated in 1957. Bucy was an aluminum die casting company and zinc die casting company located in Burbank, California. Bucy was a family owned and operated business founded in the 1940’s. They claimed that they could hold tight tolerances better than competition.

International Die Casting Design Competition 2020

In a competitive global market, customers take notice of the best. NADCA knows that competition improves the competitor. With its annual Die Casting Competition, it recognizes and rewards the outstanding casting designs of the year.

Entering and winning is one of the best ways to gain visibility with leading decision-makers. The competition is open to aluminum, magnesium, zinc die castings and other alloy families. Any number of castings may be entered. However, a separate entry form is required for each casting or assembly of castings. In addition, the metal surface cannot be improved or concealed by tumbling, shot blasting, coating or other surface treatments.

Judging is conducted by an independent panel of experts from the die casting industry, with no ties to eligible companies. The four equally weighed criteria are ingenuity of casting/product design; overall quality; cost savings; and market-expanding potential. Winning castings will be acknowledged and honored during the 2020 Virtual Die Casting Congress & Tabletop. NADCA’s Die Casting Engineer Magazine, NADCA’s Website and the NADCA Design Website will also feature the winning castings.

This competition helps promote increased use of die castings by recognizing and publicizing outstanding designs. For more information on the 2020 International Die Casting Design Competition please visit, or contact Beau Glim at

The deadline to submit your castings is July 13, 2020. Don’t hesitate!

MODERN TRANSMISSION DEVELOPMENT COMPANY (MTD) Die Casting & Plastic Injection Molding Facility Auction Details (WEBCAST ONLY)

Here is a video posted by Myron Bowling the auction company of the die casting robotic arm taking out a die casting part from the die casting machine:

The facility employed approximately 295 people and manufactured component and aftermarket parts used to supply the company’s assembly facilities. “MTD is grateful for the hard work and dedication of these employees and the continued support of the Leitchfield community,” said Craig Dukes, senior vice president of Human Resources. “We recognize the significant impact this closure will have on employees and their families and will be providing separation support including severance benefits, outplacement services and preferential hiring opportunities at MTD’s other US facilities.”

MTD made this decision after careful and ongoing evaluation of its manufacturing footprint in relation to future strategic needs, according to Eric Creech, MTD’s Communications and Marketing Manager. The move will improve overall efficiency and better position MTD to deliver competitive products in a rapidly evolving outdoor power equipment industry.

MTD, located at 2555 Brandenburg Road, remains committed to U.S. manufacturing and has increased employment at its other U.S. manufacturing facilities over the last several years, the company said. The move also allows the company to focus on better leveraging advanced manufacturing capabilities in its other U.S. facilities.
