Empire Die Casting Company Bankruptcy Filing – CHICAGO — Empire Die Casting Co. Inc. has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and is seeking court approval to be acquired by a company that would operate it as a going concern. The Macedonia, Ohio, aluminum and zinc parts maker cited production problems as well as high labor and freight costs as reasons for filing the petition according to documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Ohio.
Empire Die Casting, owned 97.7 by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard Rogel, also blamed its troubles on the ineffective implementation of the new enterprise resource planning system, according to court documents.
Kinetic Die Casting Company is saddened that another US Manufacturer is experiencing difficulties in the US marketplace today. Many manufacturers are faced with the same problems as Empire. We, on the other hand, are experiencing growth through better delivery and better quality from our lean manufacturing processes. The parts we make today, we ship today.
