Dear Dave Muench,
Where did you go? I knew you for over 20 years. My company, Kinetic Die Casting Company, ran die cast parts for your company, Die Cast Manufacturing Company, a few times. Your company ran parts for my company also. I drove by your building 12/16/2010 to wish you a Merry Christmas 2010, but your business is gone. Your company is closed and you left no forwarding address. I was told by your neighbors that you have been closed for almost a year. Before you closed, your electricity was shut off and you ran your die casting machines using a diesel generator. That when you closed, you cut up and scrapped your prized 1400 ton Harvil Die Casting Machine.

What happened? Why did you not call me? Were your die casting part prices too cheap? Did the cheap import die casting part prices close you? Did the economy close you? Did the increasing California Workers Compensation cost close you? Did the increasing California business regulations costs close you? Are you closed for good? How do your customers contact you? Where is their die cast tooling? Why did you not call me for help?

As you can see, I have several questions that I cannot ask you. You did not tell me how to contact you. I am sure that there are several customers that want to know where their tooling is, and how they can get die casting parts.

I am going to contact several common friends and suppliers to see if I can find you and help you if I can. If you see this open letter on my blog, please call me.

Bob Thomas, President
Kinetic Die Casting Company Inc.

  2. Your website was the first on my web search! That is so cool! keep up your work because these post on die castings are awesome. And I thought my client would be higher on the web search list….

  3. I know this is a very old post…but I was wondering if you ever Dave Muench??? Back in the 90’s my parents did business with him on some gun parts castings. I am sorry to hear that he went under. He was good people. I am starting to look for a casting company to do some parts for me. Thanks

  4. Sorry for your loss. Dave Muench of Die Cast Manufacturing was an interesting guy. I have not heard anything from him in over a decade. My company does not make gun parts. I believe that Kenwalt Die Casting Company in Sun Valley CA makes gun parts. You can talk to them.
