For zinc and aluminum casting, one of the best options out there is Forest City Castings! They provide turnkey, premium quality castings for a variety of applications and industries. MC Sales Solutions is proud to represent them in the South-Central region of the United States!
In this week’s blog post, we will go over their history, what they offer and how Forest City Castings can be the best choice for your zinc and aluminum casting needs.
All in the Family
Forest City Castings was founded in 2004 by Scott McRae and Michael VandenBoom in St. Thomas, Ontario. Both have had long careers in graphite casting, and using their previous experience, they launched Forest City Castings based on a unique technology- graphite mold technology.
Like traditional die casting, they can produce short to medium volume cast parts. Unlike die casting, graphite molding is only 10% of the tooling cost of more traditional methods. And while graphite casting has been around since the 1980s, it is largely underutilized by most companies, making Forest City Castings a unique and exciting alternative to other foundries.
Since their inception, they have grown from three employees to seventy-three full time employees in a 114,000 square foot facility. They take great pride in maintaining the family feel of their business, dedicating time and resources to finding and keeping employees with both the right skills and the right mindset.
“We are a family driven business, and we want that to run through our shop.” Scott McRae told Canadian Business Journal in an article earlier this year. “We work together and build personal relationships with our employees. Our employees are not just a number to us.”
