Iron Foundry

Foundrys are the core of manufacturing….out of basic raw materials….iron castings are made for multiple end products.

Foundrys in the past were dirty….smelly plants. I can remember Lakey  and Campbell, Wyant, Cannon growing up in the 50’s. Today these plants are much cleaner….modern….efficient.

A recent story about Waupaca Foundry highlighted the continued importance of  the iron foundry industry.

I had a consulting project in Waupaca….a nce small town central Wisconsin. I don’t remember the plant….yet it’s a reminder of the importance of these types of industries in our economy. Especially in the midwest which continues to be the center of US manufacturing.
