What is the proper way to deal with a company that is unresponsive to
any form of contact. IE they have outdated information on their ip
assignments, bounce every piece of e-mail that I send? (including
postmaster@ which is where the bounce message come from).
What should my next steps be? My thought is to  go to their upstream
(AS8112) and try to get contact through them.

That's what I usually try. You might want to first make sure you can't
find a website for the company (which might have newer contact info),
and make sure all the phone numbers are no longer working... looks like
you've already done all that, though.

If they have invalid contact info, you should also contact ARIN so that
they can mark the information as invalid (include a copy of the bounce
messages). Submitting them to rfc-ignorant.org might not be a bad idea
as well.
