Casting Source: You’re passionate about bringing manufacturing back to America, and certainly the reasons are many to do so. But is it one of those things that’s easier said than done?
Reg Zeller: I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this conversation with customers. Bringing something back to the U.S. is substantially easier than what it takes to initially get something going overseas.
We created our own proprietary development process to make this simple. We’ve continued to refine the process so we know all the questions to ask; we have a checklist that we go through and it’s completely transparent to the casting buyers. We just make sure everything is taken care of and we walk them through it.
CaneKast, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Superior Aluminum Castings
CHASKA, Minnesota, May 19, 2021 – CaneKast and its companies Ermak Foundry & Machining, Patriot Foundry & Castings and RDS Dock Hardware have acquired Superior Aluminum Castings of Independence, Missouri. Reg Zeller, CEO and owner commented, “Four years ago we started acquiring non-ferrous foundries because we believe in local manufacturing. We are building a network of facilities that will provide the benefits of a small business yet have state-of-the-art technology typically only found in large conglomerates. Superior is a great fit to help us achieve this vision.”
