GISSCO has the mission to promote the GISS Technology in the metal casting industry. The GISS Technology offers metal casters and parts producers substantial improvements in process time, lower parts rejects, longer die life, and better material properties in finished parts. The founder of GISSCO developed this patented technology while at MIT and launched a company in 2009 to make it available to manufacturers around the world.
