About Us

Foundry work dates back to the middle ages, but metallurgy and metal casting can be traced to ancient times.

 Thousands of years ago, metals were used in new and innovative ways to advance humanity and modernize civilization. That remains true more than ever, today. 

In an industry that stems from one of the earliest human endeavors, Elyria Foundry stands out. For more than a century, we have been a leading manufacturer of large gray and ductile iron specialty castings ranging from 50 to 200,000 pounds.

Our history dates back to 1905, when we began to produce castings in Elyria, Ohio, for the machine tool, gas engine and other industries. Our Hodge Foundry location began operation in 1876 and built a reputation for quality casting from its Greenville, Pennsylvania location. The two foundries joined to form a single company in 2008, which is today known as Elyria Foundry.

We’re a fast-paced, technically advanced, customer-focused operation creating high-quality, American-made products.
