A group of local investors is giving a Bettendorf manufacturer a new lease on life. Sivyer Steel announced Thursday it has emerged from bankruptcy and was sold in July for $6.5 million in cash. The company had been owned by Milwaukee-based FCF Partners since 1999. Its new name is Sivyer Steel Castings.

Engineers in the Quad Cities will work with a new lab in Chicago to help companies improve their factory production lines. The manufacturing lab on Arsenal Island will soon finalize a contract with the Digital Lab, GE Global Research, and three companies. They'll develop and test hardware and software for machining systems.


Congressman Dave Loebsack will visit a Quad Cities manufacturer today to kick off his new, "Made in the USA Tour." This afternoon, he plans to talk with company officials and employees at Sivyer Steel in Bettendorf.
