ebook History of Watertown, Wisconsin
Spuncast, Inc. was founded in 1976 to supply the needs of customers for heat resistant tubing. Our first customer required a thousand (1,000) 3-1/2″ diameter castings; upon completion of this order, we were in business. The castings were centrifugally cast, cleaned, cut to length, pressure tested and delivered by our owners.
This attention to detail and awareness of our customers’ needs is the basis of our business, just as it was then. From this humble start, we have grown to be a significant force in supplying quality centrifugal castings to many major markets.
These operations include heat treating, rough and tight-tolerance finish machining. Our fully equipped lab provides full metallurgical services. Our commonly produced alloys can meet your specific design requirements in alloy steels, irons, heat and corrosion resistant stainless steels.
