OEM manufacturing

When considering issues of quality, consistency, and affordability, casting is often the superior choice. Forging, fabricating, welding or machining parts often fall short of expectations in one or more of these areas. Few companies know more about casting than “Apollo”. In the past decade, we have invested more than $100 million in new plants, foundries, and technologies. We have pioneered the latest lean practices and pull manufacturing techniques, expanding our capability as a dependable partner for OEMs.

Bronze casting division

Our 85,000-square foot bronze casting facility in Pageland, South Carolina offers sand castings produced on high-speed automated match plate molding machines. Our brass foundry was the first to use a PLC- controlled autopour with a heated vessel that incorporated a stopper rod system to control the pour. This technology is now a standard in the copper-based casting industry.

Our foundry offers every aspect of brass casting, from pattern making on our CNC machining centers to high-speed trimming of castings on our trim die machines. Our facility is also ISO-registered and meets all EPA regulations. We have both a well-appointed sand lab and a metal lab with spectroanalysis capabilities, assuring the quality of the casting we produce.
