K Castings, Inc. is committed to designing, manufacturing, and delivering the highest quality products with attention to the finest details from “CONCEPT TO FINISH AT ONE LOCATION”.
K Castings, Inc. is a family owned and operated business. We are located in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
Strategically constructed adjacent to the railway on Lloyd Avenue, our historic building originally was an ice factory. A grain and feed store succeeded the ice factory.
Sequentially on the 4th of November, 1960, K Castings, Inc. was formed.
My grandfather, Albert Adams, returned home from WWII and began his career as a pattern maker. During his time at Latrobe Foundry, Albert worked closely with Al Wallisch of the Hill-Wallisch Company. Together they formed a small pattern shop in 1952. A few years later, Albert presented the idea of merging the pattern shop with a nonferrous foundry to advance the manufacturing process. Patterns could now be designed, created, and cast at one location.
Our skilled pattern engineers build intricate wooden patterns to exact specifications to be molded and cast in foundries producing the highest quality castings per industry standard. Our foundry specializes in the manufacturing of castings from nonferrous alloys; aluminum, brass/bronze, and copper. Over the years, now third generation owned and operated, we fabricated patterns and cast several specialty products including bench ends, address plaques, and umbrella golf tee markers for the legendary native Latrobian and world-famous golfer Mr. Arnold Palmer. The umbrella golf tee markers are still used today at Mr. Palmer’s Latrobe Country Club golf course and his Bay Hill golf course.
