Cadillac Casting Inc. has a long and rich history in beautiful Northern Michigan. It was originally built in 1922 as Cadillac Malleable Iron. The facility used crude iron produced by a neighboring plant known then as Cummer & Diggins. The foundry changed hands in 1972 and was purchased by Cast Metal Industries (CMI).
In 1999, the CMI International group of companies was purchased by Hayes Lemmerz International, Inc.
The company changed hands again in 2005, purchased by a group of investors. The acquisition was led by long time CMI & Hayes Lemmerz executive Daniel Minor. Dan began his career at the foundry as a high school co-op student, and worked his way to CEO. He is very passionate about the people employed at CCI and the local Cadillac community.
The foundry is a major supplier of engineered ductile iron, including high silicon molybdenum cast components. Molds are made with a high-speed green sand horizontal Combustion Engineering (CE) SpoMatic process. CCI also uses a custom automated Resin Bonded Sand (RBS) process, for difficult and “rangy” products.
CCI is committed to continuous improvement in all areas of the business. The foundry is IATF 16949 Quality Certified, ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified, and has been Ford Q1 certified since 1992.
Cadillac Casting Inc. is a privately-owned foundry operated by metal casting professionals. They currently employs over 400 dedicated team members.
