After decades of serving customers in the foundry tooling and raw casting markets, Valley Pattern, Inc. and Central Brass and Aluminum Foundry, LLC have streamlined the two brands under one name: Crucible Metal Solutions, Inc. While the new brand represents both the heritage of the company as well as its evolution into technologies such as rapid prototyping, the name Crucible Metal Solutions originated from employee engagement. Each employee completed a survey to help brainstorm new name ideas. After various meetings and combining suggestions from multiple employees, Crucible Metal Solutions was born.
With over 150 years of combined experience, Crucible Metal Solutions has capabilities to meet foundry tooling, prototyping, casting and machining needs. Today, the company sells its products and services across the United States with a focus on the Midwest region. Crucible Metal Solutions employs a veteran staff and works to foster a unique culture of employee trust, autonomy and engagement. More than just a “Job shop,” Crucible Metal employees have flexible schedules that aren’t tied to a time clock, they are encouraged to think outside the box and their input is used to drive decision-making at a senior level.
“It has never been a more exciting time than now to be an employee of Crucible Metal Solutions, and this new brand and logo reflect our entire team’s enthusiasm and focus on providing our customers with solutions to meet their most demanding projects,” said Charles. “Our brand transformation better represents where the company is today and our vision for the future.”
