CaneKast™, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Cushman Foundry
CHASKA, Minnesota, January 28th, 2022 — Cushman Foundry of Blue Ash, Ohio, was acquired by CaneKast™, a leader in non-ferrous foundries. Cushman Foundry’s history stretches back over 30 years as an independent producer of high-quality aluminum castings for many industries, including the fire suppression, industrial fan, and control markets. “We continue to innovate and expand our existing operations, so when we first started chatting with Rich (Beyersdorfer, prior owner of Cushman), we knew this would be a perfect fit for our organization,” said Josh Schultz, President of CaneKast™.
