History of Gartland Foundry
The basic policy at Gartland Foundry has always been to deliver the finest castings, at the fairest price, by the best means available.
Gartland is in its second century of continuous operation. Gartland was founded in 1902, on its present site, by Peter V. Gartland until his death in 1937. His wife, Delight, continued the management of the Company until 1951 when her daughter Betty’s husband, William M. Grimes, took over the day-to-day operations of the Foundry.
Grimes took Gartland Foundry into new markets and positioned it to be one of the leading job shop foundries in the country. Gartland Foundry has long been identified as a leader in highly machinable castings with short lead times and tremendous on time delivery.
Gartland continues to be managed by the Gartland-Grimes family and certainly has its focus on succession planning to continue the century plus operation and reach into the future to keep the foundry growing and prospering.
The commitment to producing quality iron castings in a quick, efficient manner will always be the cornerstone of Gartland Foundry.
Gartland has always maintained a strong and disciplined approach to investing in its people, safety, equipment, and technology. Over a hundred years of financial stability and serving the local community is a proud benchmark of Gartland’s legacy.
