Tennessee Foundry Expansion

New Lodge Foundry is Underway

By: Lodge Cast Iron / November 30, 2016

We're making progress on our new foundry! Here's an update on our construction so far.

Progress Made on New Lodge Foundry

As you can see in the photo above, the foundation has been poured and the construction continues on the walls and roof. We have also made significant progress on the installation of the sand towers (see photo below). During the next few months we will continue to work on the the structure and equipment installation, and we expect to complete construction in the fall of 2017.

The new 127,000 square-foot foundry is located in our hometown of South Pittsburg, Tennessee, just a block away from our currently operating foundry. When the facility is complete we expect to employ an additional 92 people in the local area. The new foundry will include a melt center, sand system and two sand cast molding machines, increasing our manufacturing capacity by 75%. We are also in the process of completing a new 200,000 square foot warehouse located a few miles away, right across the Tennessee River from our main campus.
