About Our High Quality Steel Casting Foundry
Pacific Steel Casting Company was founded in 1934 and is based in Berkeley, California USA. Our steel foundry manufactures high quality carbon, low-alloy and stainless steel castings for U.S. and International customers, mainly for heavy-duty trucks, oil drilling construction equipment and other heavy industrial end-markets. The steel castings our foundry produces range from just 1 ounce to 7000lbs using the shell mold, green sand, and air set steel casting processes. We have become one of the most respected leaders in our industry, and we are the only U.S. company that offers three plants - and the associated production and cost benefits - in one location!
