Gibbs Opens Another Die Casting Plant

Gibbs has officially opened the doors of our new Federal die casting plant.  Interestingly, this is the 2nd time around for Federal which originally launched after winning a contract from the Federal government in the mid 60’s.  It was closed in 2007 during an economic down turn.

The reason for the re-birth of Federal is to expand Gibbs’ ability to competitively meet more of our customers’ needs.  100% of Federal’s focus will be horizontal die casting which is a sharp contrast to our well-known vertical die casting expertise.  Why?  Both vertical and horizontal processes have different competitive advantages.  Having strengths in both processes means Gibbs will be a competitive supplier on even more of our customers’ programs.
