Alcast Company Midwest Works LLC Press Release

Alcast Company (Alcast) is very pleased to announce the purchase of the operating assets of Fairfield Aluminum Castings Company in Fairfield, Iowa (FALCO) along with assuming the Clarence, Missouri property on August 28, 2017.

Alcast is a permanent mold foundry located in Peoria, Illinois with a sand casting operation in Galesburg, Illinois. Alcast has been in business since 1970 and has developed an excellent standing in our industry.

Our philosophy is customer-focused, where we go above and beyond to serve our customers with excellent quality and 100% on-time shipping.

To reflect this philosophy change, we are rebranding FALCO by changing the name to Alcast Company Midwest Works LLC. (Alcast-MW). Alcast-MW will be financially healthy immediately through significant capitalization with no bank debt existing on the company financial statements.

Our intentions with Alcast-MW are to mend customer relationships, invest in updating the machinery & equipment, and invest in our people through training and foundry education. We plan to grow the business to better serve existing customers and new customers.

We believe current FALCO customers will benefit greatly from Alcast’s influence on FALCO’s current processes and offering the alternative of producing castings on the Alcast proprietary, ELECTRO-MAGNETIC casting process.

We believe current Alcast customers will benefit greatly by FALCO’s capabilities with the Hunter 32 automatic sand casting line and the Hall H6 tilt pour machinery.

The combination of these two companies will give us capabilities to produce nearly all sand casting and permanent mold casting requirements of our combined current customer base and potential customers.

Sincerely,
Steve Wessels
Alcast Company President

6 Piston Aluminum Brake Caliper Castings!

See the newest addition to our brake casting gallery, 6 piston front brake calipers.

http://www.alcastcompany.com/6-piston-brake-calipers.html

6 Piston Cast Aluminum Brake Calipers

The aluminum castings below are the outside halves of a 6 piston brake caliper for a trike from a popular motorcycle manufacturer. Our high quality aluminum foundry manufactures these brake caliper castings with our permanent mold casting process which produces a very nice surface finish perfect for painting or powder coating.

After casting these brake calipers in our aluminum foundry we heat treat the castings and then shot blast the calipers, which is one of our internal value added services. The shot blasting process creates an uniform surface perfect for painting or powder coating, but our fine surface finish also lends itself well to polishing and chrome plating!
