About Die Cast Machinery LLC

Die Cast Machinery, LLC was founded with the belief that if you provide clients with honest, factual information, they will be able to make sound business decisions. This practice has allowed us to develop and maintain long lasting relationships.

David Kaufman, President of Die Cast Machinery, LLC has practiced this philosophy for more than 40 years, just as his father, Robert (Bob) Kaufman did. Bob Kaufman was one of the icons in the early days of the die casting industry in North America. Bob began selling die casting machines in 1939 while working for Kux Machinery in Chicago.

As Vice President of Kux Machinery, Bob perhaps sold more new die cast machines than any other person in North America. In the late 1980's, Steve Cochran entered the die cast industry, working with and learning from David and Bob. Bob passed away in 1999, though his philosophy is very much alive. Steve is now Chief Operating Officer of Die Cast Machinery, LLC. Steve and David bring to their clients a combined industry experience of more than 60 years.
