U.S. Aluminum Castings Announces Expansion
Modern Casting (November 2008)
U.S. Aluminum Castings, Entiat, Wash., recently announced its expansion into a new 10,000-sq.-ft. warehouse for storage of active tooling and raw materials.
The warehouse was built with low energy, proximity-controlled high output fluorescent fixtures to conserve electricity while providing high lighting levels in all areas of the warehouse.
The manufacturer of aluminum castings has undertaken the expansion to handle the growth of its aerospace, heavy truck, fluid handling and general commercial casting businesses in the North American market, according to company management.
In September, the company received an Energy Saver award from the U.S. Department of Energy for significantly reducing its energy usage over the past year.
U.S. Aluminum Castings is a business unit of Advanced Metals Group, Philadelphia. It offers nobake, permanent mold, lost foam and green sand molding.
