The Dallesport Foundry was built and established in 1993. The original name was the Canica Foundry and it was started in Dallesport, WA. It was later renamed as Impact Alloys and in 1997 the facility was sold and became the Dallesport Foundry Inc. The foundry was started primarily to produce chrome iron castings exclusively for Canica VSI Crushers, Inc. This continued until 1997, when it began to branch out and produce castings for all different types of impact crushers, aggregate washing equipment, and mining wear liners. Currently, the foundry continuously ships wear resistant castings throughout the US and Canada through direct sales and distributors. These castings are used by aggregate producers, recycling companies, large coal and copper mines, and many other crusher manufactures and distributors. Some of the ongoing customers include Kiewit Pacific, Oldcastle Materials, Granite Construction, Ashgrove Cement, , Shimmick Construction, and the Knife River Corporation. Other great companies that Dallesport Foundry has been able to service include Lippman-Milwaukie Crushers, Phelps-Dodge Mining, Renton Engineering Company, Power Equipment Company, and Kenco Engineering.
The Dallesport Foundry is owned by Brett Rose. The daily operation of the foundry is managed by Anthony Stout, Vice President of Dallesport Foundry and General Manager. Anthony has been working at the company since 1993. Anthony has a degree in Engineering and uses his extensive experience and education in the production of the chrome iron castings. The company strives to design and produce wear castings that not only reduce cost, but also improve the end users efficiency. Through direct sales and the partnership with ACTECH, the Dallesport Foundry revenues should increase by more than 15% in 2012.
