EJ was founded in 1883, and the construction of the new foundry represents the single largest investment in the history of the company.
The new facility
The new facility rises above the northern Michigan landscape, and is on a 200-acre plot of land.
Inside the plant
To help plan the facility and manage the project, EJ turned to AFS Corporate Member Kodiak Group, which partnered with EJ’s Facility Engineering Support team to design the process flow, engineer the building, and manage the construction of the project.
The electric furnace melting deck is one of the changes for EJ at its new facility.
Braving the elements
Construction carried on during the winter months.
Modern Casting has named AFS Corporate Member EJ the 2019 Metalcaster of the Year. Here are the sights of their new facility in Warner Township, near Elmira, Michigan.
