There are numerous benefits to partnering with a local foundry to tackle your unique contract manufacturing project.
Beyond the general advantages you get with American manufacturing services and simpler supply chain logistics, working with a local Kansas-based foundry can offer your project better customer service and engineering support, both pre- and post-production. Local domestic manufacturers can generally be more responsive to the unique needs of your products and market, while also collaborating more closely with your business to achieve a more efficient and optimized production plan.

Four Benefits to Working with a Local Foundry Based in Kansas
1. More Efficient Communication and Collaboration
Partnering with a local foundry service provider provides your project with a grounds for better communication, as well as easier access to all materials related to your project. This is especially important when developing complex castings or difficult-to-manufacture products with extremely customized designs and geometries.
Collaboration throughout the design and early production stages is key to ensuring your final products meet all of your requirements – and local foundries such as Acme provide an avenue for this collaboration, removing all possible logistical hurdles.
2. Faster Turnaround Time for Your Products
One of the biggest benefits to choosing a local foundry is our ability to deliver faster turnaround times. Our streamlined production process can substantially reduce your delivery time while also minimizing any potential delays. Furthermore, we can more easily expedite orders for local customers without running into shipping or supply chain issues.
3. Greater Flexibility in Manufacturing
Working with a local foundry can provide greater flexibility to your project through a more versatile range of manufacturing capabilities.
We are able to collaborate closely with our customers to develop a customized solution which meets their exact product needs as efficiently as possible. This is especially beneficial to complex casting projects, as well as specialized castings and smaller production runs which demand a truly unique manufacturing solution.
4. Better Quality Control and Product Consistency
Local foundries can also offer better quality control over our custom casting services. Since we are located in close proximity to our customers, their product engineers and inspectors are able to analyze the casting process in person and keep tabs on all results. This can help catch any quality control issues early on in the production process when they are much easier, and often cheaper, to remedy.
Additionally, Acme Foundry is an ISO 9001:2015 certified American provider. Our quality certification further ensures the consistency of our results.
