In 1955 California Casting was established in San Francisco and the dedication to quality castings began. Foundry laborer, Joe Quilici started in 1959 and his hard work and loyalty gave him the opportunity to purchase the foundry in 1968. This marks the beginning of a trusted family business. After many successful years in San Francisco, Joe decided to move the foundry to the more industrialized destination of Richmond, CA which is where the foundry stands today.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Mark Quilici started his career at California Casting in 1985, after completing the Engineering Technology program at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Throughout his years, he studied every detail of the business which presented him an easy transition to ownership in 2015 when Joe Quilici retired.
Now the family legacy continues as the third generation of Quilici enters in the California Casting workforce. Luke Quilici, Mark’s son, pursued his passion for the foundry and began his fulltime position in 2020. Along with his father, he hopes to uphold the family tradition and commitment to quality for years to come.
