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.

Pioneer Diecasters Error

Yesterday, I reported that the business closure of Pioneer Diecasters, and that information about them closing is true. Article: https://www.kineticdiecasting.com/kdc/pioneer-diecasters-inc-closing/

Pioneer Die Casting Company
4209 Chevy Chase Drive,
L.A., CA 90039

Unfortunately, I also reported yesterday that the owner Carl H. Spahr had recently passed away. That information about Mr. Spahr’s passing is thankfully incorrect and I apologize. I received false information from someone associated with Pioneer Diecasters that Carl passed away a few weeks ago. I am deeply saddened by my error and I apologize for any inconvenience of my error to the associates, friends and family of Carl Spahr and to Pioneer Diecasters, Inc. I am still sad that the company closed.
