What is a Foundry?
Our foundry produces metal castings, from which we make our premium parts. Our foundry currently pours several alloys of bronze, iron, and steel. Each material is selected for its unique performance characteristics.
Why is foundry work important to Excel?
Needless to say, our foundry’s quality and consistency are extremely important. Our reputation is built on our ability to continually supply quality castings to our machinists. Our foundry produces excellent castings and that paves the way for our machinists to consistently deliver parts within tolerances.
What type of people is Excel looking for?
The ideal foundry worker must be highly team-oriented. While working with literal tons of liquid metal in a large ‘pour,’ the team must be aware of each other and work as one unit to ensure everyone’s safety. Foundry work is not for the faint at heart. We’re looking for people who are willing to work hard, and want to learn every role in the foundry. You will be required to learn each task performed in the foundry, and will be given the opportunity to perform them in real time.
No Experience? No Problem! Excel has a great training program.
If you are new in the manufacturing industry and think you might have what it takes to be a foundry technician, Excel’s in-house training program will help get you started! If you have the natural intelligence, a great attitude and a natural love of teamwork, you might be a great fit for Excel’s Foundry Team!
What makes Excel a Great Place to Work?
The people, of course! Join the Excel family, and find out firsthand what a ‘team’ environment can accomplish. No matter how crazy the deadline, a good team can come together to make it happen! Join the fast-paced environment of modern manufacturing.
