Mid-State becomes separate unit of Cascade Die Casting.

Cascade Die Casting Group, Inc has made Mid-State Die Casting Co, Grand Rapids, Mi, a separate stragetic business unit within the organization, according to Rick DeBlasio, Cascade Die Casting president.

Previously, the Mid-State unit shared its senior management with Cascade's other operation in the Grand Rapids area, Production Aluminum Co.

"Mid-State Die Casting, a zinc producer, and Production Aluminum Co, an aluminum producer, did not share enough of a strategic focus to continue a common senior management team," DeBlasio said. "The units deserve to have the necessary management resources allocated to them individually to allow them to make the kind of progress we expect relative to customers, quality and people."

The new vice president and general manager of Mid-State is Hal Stacy, formerly vice president and general manager of the combined units. One of the Group's most senior managers, he has more than 35 years of diecasting experience and has been associated with Mid-State since before the formation of the Cascade Die Casting Group in 1985.

Cascade Die Casting Group, Grand Rapids, is a wholly owned subsidiary of TCH Industries, also of Grand Rapids. The Group produces custom die castings for a variety of applications and customers.
