The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, which specifies requirements for the design, manufacture, inspection and testing of pressure vessels, is the most recognized construction code. ASME is known globally and sets the standard for both the quality of products and the quality of manufacturers adhering to its procedures.

We are registered with the National Board for our production of ASME pressure vessels.

Manufacturing pressure vessels that operate safely in end-use applications is a big responsibility. For us to produce ASME ductile iron pressure vessels, structural integrity throughout the casting, which requires consistent processes and adhering to the strict procedural requirements, is paramount. Producing ASME ductile iron pressure vessels is a unique capability and one that is only shared with a few iron foundries in North America.

Our environmental and community goals go beyond simply meeting regulatory requirements. We integrate these goals with our strategic and economic objectives – focusing on future sustainability. Our corporate values uphold our commitment to sound stewardship with suppliers, employees, and customers. When planning for the future, we utilize an environmental management system, which facilitates the measurement of potential ecological impact of our actions. We seek to reduce waste, re-use or recycle materials, and select and use materials from suppliers that are environmentally aware in their business activities and minimize energy consumption. We believe responsibility goes beyond the organization into the community and into the environment, so we educate our employees about good environmental practices at home and in the workplace.

We are a participant in the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Green Tier program and a member of the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council’s Green Masters Program. Over the last year, we has improved performance in each of the nine sustainability areas designated by the Green Masters Program.
