The acquisition of Patriot Foundry & Castings by Ermak Foundry and Machining/Northwest Casting (www.ermak.com) furthers the mission of both groups to grow local manufacturing and marries the flexibility of small companies with the quality and efficiency offered by large conglomerates. This acquisition allows both foundries to scale operations, invest in new technologies, and expand the footprint of customer-focused entities across the country. Clark Howell, a 3rd+ generation foundryman, has been named GM to work alongside the talented employees at Patriot. Clark comes from a family of foundry owners and has performed nearly every job in the industry throughout his 25+ years. More details to come!
