Engineering, Design, & Product Development 

Product Development is the resource needed to prepare your project for production – from obtaining precise tooling to developing specific manufacturing processes.

Pattern Shop

The best tooling and processes lead to sound casting and high-quality aluminum parts that are free from defects.

No-Bake Molding

Our largest castings come out of the no-bake molding department, in any shape, from 50 to 800 pounds.

Green Sand Molding

Since 1933, our aluminum foundry has used manual green sand molding for its low tooling cost and renewability.

Melt Department

We only pour using certified prime aluminum ingots. This ensures the highest quality products to our customers.

Core Department 

We make cores using cold-box, shell-core, and no-bake processes—and can also have cores created with 3D printing.

Heat Treat Department

One of our most requested services, the heat treat process increases alloys’ strength and dimensional stability.

Finishing Department

The finishing of large and small castings includes cutting, cleaning, grinding, and shot blasting.

Quality Control

Our quality control department is involved from the time materials are received…all the way through manufacturing and shipping.


  • Standard Packaging at no cost
  • Custom Skids and Special Packaging available at additional cost
  • Will ship via your preferred carrier
