Arrow Die Casting Company Closed

I received a phone call in recent weeks from our national organization, North American Die Casters Association of die casting companies (NADCA) about Arrow Diecasters. Somehow, NADCA did not know that Arrow Die Casting Company was closed. Arrow closed a long time ago. I think they closed in May 2017.

I wrote this in my blog 12/10/2020:
