What We Do

Large Iron Casting

On-site. We specialize in large iron casting in the 500lb - 20,000lb range. 

Our Minster, OH location is capable of casting gray and ductile iron up to 45,000lbs.

Pattern Making

On-site. We work with you to create the pattern for your casting.

Patterns ultimately determine the shape and dimensional accuracy of the casting and contribute to iron integrity, which is why this step is so important. 

Machining

On-site. We simplify the casting process by providing castings machined on-site and sourced through our trusted supplier partners.

Why Choose Us?

Single Source Accountability

5 Generations

We are a 5th generation foundry-centered manufacturer and truly integrated supplier. We’ve learned the importance of listening to our client's needs and developing strong relationships built on exceptional communication.
