We Are Growing!
Ermak Foundry & Machining (including Northwest Casting) are excited to announce the acquisition of Patriot Foundry & Castings of Franklin, New Hampshire (www.patriotfoundry.com). This acquisition expands Ermak’s capabilities to include brass, bronze, and zinc castings, in addition to adding ISO-9001 and NIST 800-171 certifications. The new location will serve as our New England/East Coast base of operations as we continue to expand across the country.

Ermak provides everything from prototypes to one-off custom products to large production runs. We specialize in permanent mold (also known as gravity-fed die cast), green sand, and air set (also known as no-bake) castings as well as many value-added services such as finishing, machining, and heat-treat.
We are a one-stop shop for finished, precision cast aluminum parts. Our management team can assist with product and market development, whether you sell direct, through big-box retail, or via distribution. We use certified aluminum ingot – 319, 333, 356, A356, 535, & 713 – and utilize flask/die sizes from 12″ x 14″ to 60″ x 60″.
Our production runs range from one to tens of thousands and from ounces to hundreds of pounds, always at a high tolerance for original equipment manufacturers in the following broad categories: industrial, recreational, construction, utility, and agricultural companies throughout the world.
Our variety of permanent mold, gravity-fed die casting machines offer the flexibility and capacity for production runs large and small, with tighter dimensional tolerances and a superior surface finish over sand castings, making for a great alternative to expensive high-pressure die cast processes.
We have both green sand and air set (no-bake) casting capabilities, allowing for cost efficient tooling and parts from low- to high-cost, simple to extremely complex, and small to very large.
We utilize a proprietary process that allows us to turn around a 3D CAD file to “95% accurate” casting prototypes in roughly a week. We also work with partners where we can “print” a sand pattern that will give you a production accurate part, typically in a few weeks, saving you valuable development time and money.
Product & Market Development
Our foundry and machine shop work in tandem to produce castings, prototypes, one-off custom products and large production runs of the finest quality, with typical lead times of 4-8 weeks and expedites in as little as a day.
