Crucible Metal Solutions, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Crucible Foundry, LLC both have a deep history rooted in the heart of the Fox Valley of Northeastern Wisconsin. The foundry, originally known as Central Brass and Aluminum Foundry, was established in 1927 while the pattern and mold division, previously known as Valley Pattern, Inc., was founded in 1985.

Crucible Metal Solutions was established in 2015 under the ownership of Nate and Karin Charles and remains a privately-owned corporation. In 2020, Crucible was certified as a woman-owned small business (WOSB) spearheaded by President, Karin Charles and General Manager, Connor Montgomery.

With a foundation built on over three generations of foundry and patternmaking experience, Crucible continues to deliver on our customers' highest expectations by offering quality products at a competitive cost with on-time delivery.
