URC News & Events

We introduced our dynamic "4U Service" positioning at the CASTEXPO and Metalcasting Congress in 2013--four points of difference anchored in quality, response, product and trust that further distinguish URC from its competitors.


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our company’s founder, Raymond J. Niesen, on Saturday, April 6th, 2013. 

All who knew him — as a loving husband, father and grandfather… as a trustworthy friend or stalwart brother-in-arms… as an earnest and honest businessman… and as one of the guys who “done good” from Pittsburgh’s North side — know that today the world is a little more dull, a little less smart, and a lot less colorful without Ray in it.

If a life well-lived is indeed its own monument, then what Ray leaves behind in family, friends and in our company will stand tall and true for generations to come.
