Share Article

Pennsylvania-based division remains key component of North America’slargest aluminum die casting company.

“The early growth and success of Airo Die Casting was greatly influenced by Dan’s relentless search for the next innovative management trend,” said Scott Bull, CEO, Pace Industries

Pace Industries announces the passing of the leadership torch at its Airo Division, one of its most versatile and successful facilities, located in Loyalhanna, Penn. With 12 divisions, 21 facilities and more than 4,000 associates across the U.S. and Mexico, Pace is North America’s largest aluminum die casting company, as well as a provider of comprehensive die casting services in magnesium and zinc.

Effective immediately, Marshall Haines, a 30-year engineering, materials and plant management veteran who previously served as vice president of materials and logistics for Pace, succeeds Dan Krinock as president of the Airo Division. Krinock, an integral piece of Airo’s success for nearly 40 years, will continue with Pace leadership as a consultant to special projects before transitioning into retirement.

“Dan continually reinvented the mindset of his team to deliver success as the division evolved,” said Rod Taylor, COO, Pace Industries. “That’s the mark of a great leader – and a big reason we’re thrilled to have Marshall following in his footsteps. Marshall is the perfect fit to continue our tradition of innovation and deliver big results for the organization and, most importantly, our clients.”

One of its original employees, Dan Krinock played a significant role in growing the Airo Division from a producer of die cast compressor blades for the nuclear industry into a 155,400-square-foot manufacturing facility with a full range of service capabilities for the automotive, motorcycle, recreational vehicle and heatsink technology industries. Under Krinock’s leadership, Airo was recognized with the top Jobs First Governor’s ImPAct Award, recognizing businesses throughout Pennsylvania that have made a positive impact on local and state economies through consistent job growth, associate retention and development.

“The early growth and success of Airo Die Casting was greatly influenced by Dan’s relentless search for the next innovative management trend,” said Scott Bull, CEO, Pace Industries. “Dan has always embraced change, and this led Airo to become one of the most versatile and valuable divisions in the Pace family.”

In his new leadership role, Haines is focused on growing Airo’s reputation for excellence in quality, service and innovation. In addition to customary die casting services, Airo provides specialized in-house operations such as tool design and construction, pressure testing, chromating and assembly.
