S.U.S. Die Casting was formed in 1946. S.U.S. is reportedly the oldest non-captive die casting company in Indiana. The founder, Mr. Salvador U. Siena, a forerunner in the development of the die casting process was quite successful in introducing the die cast process to many industries. The 1950s brought about Mr. Siena's death, however, the ownership was retained by the family and the business continued to grow through the 1960s & 70s.
The 1980s were a continual struggle to maintain market positions previously established. The required emphasis of change and realignment to meet the needs of a changing market-place were not in place.
In July, 1992 S.U.S. Die Casting was acquired from the Siena family by George Todd. Mr. Todd established the newly formed company as S.U.S. Cast Products. Mr. Todd brought to the new company decades of casting experience and best practices gained in the automotive industry. A clear vision and implementation of management systems and focusing on the customers needs have been instrumental in the successes S.U.S. has consistently realized for the past 20 years.
Jeff Todd joined his father in the business in 1993. Capitalizing upon an engineering background and mentoring of his industry veteran father, Jeff learned every facet of the die casting business cumulating with the succession of his father in 2008 as company president and shareholder.
In 2011, Jeff decided to bring in a partner to complement the leadership team and position S.U.S. for the next 20 years of growth and success. JR Merlau joined S.U.S. in September as company president. JR brings to S.U.S. 20 years of experience in administration, sales & marketing, and business development.
S.U.S. is a financially sound privately held company owned in whole by JR Merlau and Jeff Todd committed to providing service and quality excellence to our valued customers and a positive and rewarding work life to our employees.
