Franklin Bronze Plaques - Manufacturing Facility


Established in 1878, Franklin Bronze & Alloy Company is one of the oldest continually operating foundries in Pennsylvania. Historically a sand casting facility, Franklin Bronze expanded into the investment casting market in 1987. We subsequently increased our investment casting capabilities in 1989, 1991, and 1996, and our investment casting division now operates as a manufacturing facility separate from our sand casting division.

In January, 2008, Franklin Bronze Plaques, Inc., formerly a division of Franklin Bronze & Alloy Company, became a separate operating entity, and is located in separate facilities. Franklin Bronze Plaques, a bronze plaque manufacturer, is a woman-owned business (WOB) under Federal and State guidelines.


Sand Casting Division


Franklin Bronze's no-bake sand casting division manufactures high-quality sand castings in brass, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and nickel-base alloys. Their sand casting facility relies on 100% induction melting and a complete air-set casting system, and their full-range analytical spectrometer allows thorough hardness testing and chemical analysis. Their sand casting approach also includes reclamation of all sand used in the casting process.

The sand casting division's molding capabilities include green sand molding on four squeezer production lines. Castings can be provided with either rough or machined finishes, and complete machining capabilities allow in-house tool making as well as the ability to machine-finish customer parts. Franklin Bronze sand castings range from 1 inch to 3 square feet and may weigh up to 200 pounds. Sand casting orders range from 1 to 50,000 pieces.
