In The Metal Casting Business for 100 Years

Founded as Motor and Machinery Castings in 1923 by Joseph H. Barron, the company has flourished through three industrial revolutions. What began as a Detroit iron sand foundry producing castings up to 60 tons, has evolved into a global manufacturer of precision machined castings and assemblies for aerospace, defense, space, automotive, energy technology and other commercial industries.

Barron Industries can be traced to casting components for Henry Ford out of Detroit in the ’20s. Born in the second industrial revolution with the assembly line, the manufacturer witnessed and employed the third industrial revolution with automation, and now is an active player in Industry 4.0. Throughout its history, the company has striven to constantly innovate and meet the needs of its customers, employees and community. Ahead of its time, Barron implemented Industry 4.0 in 2003 when it installed a cloud-based ERP system that fully integrated and automated all business functions. As in our first century, innovation will continue to be Barron’s focus in our next hundred years.

Barron’s turnkey manufacturing capabilities include design for manufacturing, rapid prototyping, CNC machining, non-destructive testing, plating, painting, assembly, laser etching, and custom packaging. More than 200 ferrous and non-ferrous alloys poured include Class II armor, stainless steels, tool steels, aluminum, cobalt, and nickel-based alloys. We are AS9100D and NADCAP Accredited for digital radiography, penetrant testing and welding. Barron’s numerous quality certifications ensure product integrity in everything we do.
