Coffeyville, Kansas is the location of our aluminum foundry and machine shop. The molding process is no-bake sand molding. The business was founded by Ivan Morrow in the late 1940’s. It began in a small building of about 3,000 square feet pouring aluminum and brass greensand castings. The operation grew under Mr. Morrow’s management to include a pattern shop, plaster cast matchplate shop, heat treat department, and machine shop. Molding processes included manual and automatic greensand molding and centrifugal casting. The business was purchased by Bob and George Campbell in the 1980’s. Under their management, a neighboring foundry, Caney Castings was purchased and machining capability was expanded. During the 1990’s customers began moving casting work offshore and economic pressures convinced Bob Campbell to sell and concentrate on farming.
Morrow Foundry was purchased by Tri-State Cast Technologies, Inc. in 1999. Offshore pressures continued and Tri-State downsized the business to more closely match casting demand. Today, Morrow Foundry produces larger aluminum castings in no-bake sand molds. It also acts as a US sales and warehousing point for its sister company in China, Affiliated Global Technologies. Through AGT, Morrow Foundry supplies machined aluminum sand castings, aluminum permanent mold castings, aluminum die castings, ductile iron castings, steel investment castings, and steel forgings to customers in Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
Morrow Foundry has machining and heat treating capabilities. The aluminum alloys available include 319, 356, A356, 360, 380, 713, ZA alloys, and brass and bronze alloys.
Morrow Foundry has a product line of cast aluminum boat hardware used mostly on pontoon boats. We also cast brass hammers and tools used in applications involving compressed gasses.
