Company description

William J. Grede founded Grede Foundries in 1920 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Since then, Grede's single foundry has expanded with the acquisition of other facilities across the Midwestern United States. In 1997, the company jumped across the Atlantic with the purchase of Duport Harper Foundries, Ltd., in Tipton, West Midlands, United Kingdom. Today, Grede Foundries operates 12 foundries, producing gray iron, ductile iron, and steel casings. Products include axles, brake parts, cases, carriers, and housings, crankshafts, turbos, calipers, water pumps, and wheel cylinders. Grede also offers clients services including design assistance, painting, machining, sub-assembly, and custom packaging. Products are sold to customers for construction machinery and equipment, mechanical power transmission, internal combustion engines, farm machinery and equipment, and motor vehicles, including trucks. Key competitors for the family-owned company include Atchison Casting and Citation.
