Default Future of Semroc

Semroc Fans,
I am sorry to say that we will be closing the company. After my fatherís death and my stay in the hospital I have realized that it will be impossible to catch up. I have decided after much thought that it would be in my best interest to close the doors. This is not an easy decision after living a 10yr plus dream with my Dad. We appreciate all the loyalty that you have all shown me and my family over the years, we are forever grateful. We will always cherish the memories and friendships we have made over the years. It has made all this worthwhile.
All of the current inventory is up for sale but there will not be any custom parts cut and once the kits and parts are gone there will be no more. If anyone is interested in buying out current stock please drop us an email and let us know. Again thank you all for helping me and my family live the dream!

The Semroc Family

Thank you for all you have done over the years.
Your company is the class act of the industry that will be remembered far longer than you were in business.
I hope all goes well for your family in the future.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

There comes a time, when it's time for a new dream. SEMROC did a great job and was a class act that will be missed by many. Best of luck going forward.

God bless all of you!!

Oh my. I was afraid of this, alas.

Semroc was/is my favorite company. Rockets or not. I'm sorry to see it end, but I do understand. Thanks very much for everything. I don't think I would have gotten back into model rocketry to the extent that I have, had Semroc not been here.

Again, thank you. It's been a real pleasure. My very best to you and the family.

What a bummer. I am really going to miss your kits. I've built about a dozen or so and loved every one of them (except for the Mars Lander and that's an issue with the builder and not the kit ). There comes a time in life when hard decisions have to be made and it sounds like this is the right one here.

I cannot say this enough...I am really really going to miss those kits.
