Son of Former Berkshire Anodizing Owner Sentenced For Larceny

Staff Reports

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The son of the former owner of Berkshire Anodizing was sentenced to a year in jail for taking about $160,000 from the company.

Kenneth Sigsbury, 52, of Pownal, Vt. pleaded guilty on Wednesday in Berkshire Superior Court to single counts of making false entries into corporate records and larceny over $250, an ongoing and continuing offense. He was sentenced by Judge Daniel Ford to one year in Berkshire County House of Correction and given one year probation.

The incidents occurred between February 1, 2011 and December 14, 2011.

Sigsbury stayed with the company after his father, Frank Sigsbury, sold the business to Arthur Grodd of Northampton to avoid bankruptcy. Kenneth Sigsbury stayed on because he was well versed in the technical and quality side of the business and that he had sales relationships with many of the company's customers.

The former Modern Aluminum Anodizing in North Adams was rescued from bankruptcy in 2010 with the sale and the jobs of some 40 workers were saved. The sale was heralded by government officials as a second chance for a failing local business.
