Profile:

  • The American Foundry Society was founded in 1896 and has grown to an international organization of approximately 13,000 members in 47 countries. Fifty-two local chapters and 33 student chapters in the United States, Canada and Mexico are affiliated with AFS.

    AFS assists member companies and individuals to effectively and efficiently manage all production operations, to profitably market their products and services, and to equitably manage their employees. AFS also promotes the interests of the foundry industry before the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. With the direction of its volunteer committee structure, the professional staff of AFS provides support in the areas of technology, management and education to further activities that will enhance the economic progress of the metalcasting industry.

    The mission of the American Foundry Society today is "to provide and promote knowledge and services that strengthen the metalcasting industry for the ultimate benefit of its customers and society."
