Castings are the key to making pumps and compressors. Making replacement parts demands that a company be able to make or buy castings. At Standard Alloys we use our own foundry located in Southeast Texas to make our castings. Metals are alloyed to exacting standards, melted at temperatures up to 3000 degrees and poured into the molds that we also make at the same location. The result is that our customers "know" where their castings are made and are invited to come watch them being made. Other parts manufacturers simply can not make that offer. We proudly note "Made in America" on our products.
