"Quality, Service, and Reliability are at the core of everything we do. They were a hundred years ago, they are today, and they will be tomorrow. That is who we are."
- McLean Foundry Ltd.
McLean Foundry will satisfy your iron casting needs. Our melting operation consists of a 10 ton/hour cupola and three individual pouring lines for small, medium, and large castings. We use a no-bake core and moulding system.
Patternmaking is done through either the use of standard wood patterns or single-use polystyrene "foam" patterns as a cost effective, and fast alternate when a pattern does not exist. Other services include heat treating, machining, mechanical testing, and non-destructive testing.
Custom Grey and Ductile Iron castings in all classes and grades. Producing custom casting sizes from 20 - 20,000 lbs. Quality is always our first priority.
Due to our in house pattern capabilities, breakdown and replacement castings can be available in one week regardless of pattern availability.
Castings for auto stamping dies, gears, machine tool industry, or anything that suits our capacity. We serve companies across North America.
A History You Can Trust
We started in 1902 as Hartley Foundry and had an important role in supplying castings to Canada's war production during the two World Wars. In 1946, with some expansion and retooling, we began to focus on the manufacturing of aircraft, stamping industries, and jobbing services for low volume specialized castings. Under new ownership in the 1970's, the foundry became known as McLean Foundry Limited.
Today, our 31 team members possess over 500 years of combined service. That's an average of 16 years per person. We're a proud founding member of the Canadian Foundry Association and a member of the American Foundry Society as well.
Our standard lead times are best in the industry. We offer expedited lead times as low as one week, even with no existing pattern. We ship all over North America and handle all customs paperwork. We offer a hassle free shipping experience at affordable rates.
Range of Materials
We provide a wide array of ductile and gray cast irons, specializing in high tensile ductile iron from 80-100 PSI. Automotive press die materials include: GM238, GM241, GM246, GM338, and more.
No Pattern? No Problem. We're capable of reproducing castings from broken parts, samples, and worn machinery. Drawings are not necessary provided that the basic information is known.
