Fairfield Castings Sold; Will Remain Operational in Fairfield

Fairfield Castings has been sold. According to an overnight press release from The Fairfield Economic Development Association, Faircast, Inc., a group of local investors purchased certain assets at auction Wednesday and although details are being finalized, operations will remain in Fairfield. FEDA Executive Director, Joshua Laraby, stated “Out of all the possible outcomes that could have come from the auction, I think this will be very positive for Fairfield…”
Responding to the needs of displaced workers from Fairfield Castings, LLC, and not knowing at the time who the new ownership might be, FEDA organized a Job Fair scheduled for July 6th. Though FEDA is optimistic about the future of the foundry, they have decided to go forward with the Job Fair and encourage employers with open positions to participate.
The Fairfield Economic Development Association Manufacturing Job Fair will be held at the Fairfield Best Western Inn on July 6th from 3 to 6pm. Contact FEDA for more information. 641-472-3436.
