Delray Steel Casting

Delray Steel Casting was founded in 1946. In 1976 the company moved to a new facility in Melvindale, a suburb of Detroit.

DSC employed around 100 workers casting components for industrial, construction, mining, automotive, and aerospace companies. As a smaller facility the company focused on fabricating small runs of components including pumps, railroad segments, machine tools, and stamping dies. In the course of a month the plant could turn out 600 tons of steel proudcts or 200 tons of iron.

DSC shut down sometime around 2012. The site was auctioned off in 2014 and was bought by Peerless Metal Products and Abrasive, which had a facility in southwest Detroit that was in the way of proposed bridge to Canada. Work on the site began in 2015 with partial demolition of the existing structure and a large addition. By 2021 the plant was up and running again.
