Metalcasting Hits Primetime (Almost)
August 4, 2009
If you read this blog and were sitting on your sofa watching the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on July 28, you may have taken notice when the following images came on your screen: www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/#32186844.
That’s right, a metalcasting facility was highlighted on the news program as an example of a company succeeding during a downturn that has claimed the title on so many other businesses.
That’s right, there was metalcaster Doug Parsons, president of Excel Foundry and Machine, Pekin, Ill., explaining how blessed his company has been to keep its employees and continue doing business as usual in what’s been described as the worst economic slump since the Great Depression.
That’s right, the metalcasting industry was featured just before primetime on one of the major networks, and it was shown doing something right. So congratulations to Excel Foundry and Machine for showing the world the excellence we already know is in the metalcasting industry.
