Latrobe Foundry establishes new location
AFS Corporate Member Latrobe Foundry Machine & Supply Co. (Latrobe, Pennsylvania) announced the opening of a second machining location in Pasco, Washington. The site will machine items from aluminum bar and tube stock and will increase capacity to better serve customers across the country. The manufacturing facility in Whitney, Pennsylvania, will continue to cast and machine aluminum products.The new facility is led by Michael Steiner, a fourth-generation owner. Steiner joined the company in 2014 after several years with Ferguson Enterprises (Oaks, Pennsylvania). "Because the Western United States and Western Canada account for more than 20% of our annual sales, we felt that it was important to have a family member and owner on-site," president Ted Steiner said. "I couldn't be happier about leading this expansion of Latrobe Foundry in Washington," Michael Steiner said. "This facility represents not only our commitment to our customers, but our dedication to continuing the legacy started by my great-grandfather 86 years ago. We will continue to provide the quality, American-made products we are known for while expanding our reach into new business sectors."
