What type of information are you looking for?
What type of employment info? Are you looking for personnel write ups, payroll sheets, retirement account info, etc.?
I don't see that anyone is showing as having bought that company now and, even if they did., the chances of them having the personnel records from the 1950s are almost 0%. However, what you can do is contact the Social Security Administration and ask them to provide something saying that you worked for the company. While they may not have any of the actual paper records that were filed they should still have the information about the company paying into your social security from back at that time.
Also, if they had a pension plan then the US Government may have records of the pension. The agency that tracks that now is at http://www.pbgc.gov/ and you can contact them and ask for information.
