History of Rangers Die Casting
Founded in 1946 by three die makers with a passion for quality tooling and that tradition continues today. Rangers Die Casting initially was involved in the production of several different toys. The first was the die for a rubber toy reproduction of the Army Ranger knife, which was the basis for our company name. We also produced cast metal jacks and a replica of the Offenhauser Midget race car that remains today as the Rangers Die Casting logo.
After several years, the toy business began to fade and we repositioned ourselves as a full-service aluminum die caster serving the growing automotive and aerospace markets in Southern California. Over the next six decades, Rangers Die Casting continued to modernize, invest in new equipment and develop services to meet the needs of Original Equipment Manufacturers throughout the West Coast. We provide these companies with a wide range of aluminum die cast components, aluminum die castings, aluminum alloy castings and metal castings. In addition, Rangers Die Casting offers complete turnkey service including aluminum die cast product design assistance, die design, precision aluminum alloy die casting, machining, finishing and assembly of cast aluminum components.
