Bingham & Taylor celebrate expansion, modernization
AFS Corporate Member Bingham & Taylor celebrated a two-year expansion and upgrades at its Culpeper, Virginia, foundry with a ribbon-cutting event on October 6. Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin along with local and regional elected officials were in attendance to show their support for the company’s newly unveiled electric melt system.
The new system has reduced injuries by over 90%, lowered CO emissions by 98%, and increased recycled content abilities for their products to contain greater than 99% recycled content. It has also significantly expanded production capacity, which resulted in adding 32 hourly and 13 salaried/professional jobs into the Culpeper community. Bingham & Taylor has invested $23 million dollars over the last five years into this expansion.
“Over the years, we have consistently created innovative products and accessories to address a variety of performance, durability, and security issues in the industry, which has allowed us to have the edge on many of our competitors,” said Owner Laura Grondin. “I have a strong commitment to the community and our employees to ensure Bingham & Taylor is sustainable and viable for years to come. This expansion and modernization is just one of many opportunities for us to invest in the communities we work in and serve.”
