  • ENGINEERING & DESIGN | CPI - Cast Products Inc.

    Engineering & Design We’re Problem Solvers First Problem-solving is the core of what we do. Every project that goes through our Engineering Department is viewed as a challenge – can we improve the fit, function, or finish? We take pride in adding value. If we put our stamp of approval on it, we make sure that it exceeds your expectations. State-of-the-Art An engineer is only as good as their resources. At Cast Products, we utilize the latest technologies in CAD, CAM, and CNC software to deliver the highest value to our customers. When a customer submits a project to us, we consider 2d prints, 3d models, and photo renderings as standard deliverables as part of our quote. We understand that casting design can be difficult, and we want to be sure our customers are satisfied with the project path before we begin manufacturing tooling. Manufacturability We are an elite group of tinkerers and we know manufacturing. Having all processes in-house, from design to tooling to manufacturing, is a powerful value offer in terms of manufacturability. We have managed thousands of projects from design to daily production and we are able to harness that knowledge of processes and cost optimization on every new project. Before pushing a project into production, we tediously explore how a product can be designed or finished differently to ensure we deliver the highest value to our customers. Experience a team with unwavering dedication to its craft and a hands-on approach to the design & tooling process.

  • ABOUT US | CPI - Cast Products Inc.

    About Us Cast Products, Inc. was started in 1979 by Basil Wheeler. An avid inventor and entrepreneur, Mr. Wheeler quickly transformed his small-time pattern shop, which outsourced castings at the time, into a giant sand casting foundry focused on manufacturing products that solved problems for OEM customers. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Cast Products primarily manufactured its product line for the specialty and emergency vehicle industries. Under Basil’s leadership, CPI designed and manufactured hundreds of catalog products inclu ding some of the more notable ones – the patented “In-The-Bumper Siren Speakers”, IV Hangers, Door Grabbers, Folding Steps, Light Housings, Fuel Guards, and Fenderettes. During this time, Cast Products b uilt a reputation for not only being a great supplier that put its customers first but also manufacturing castings with exceptional surface finishes. ​ In 1992, Mike Medlen became President of Cast Products. Under his leadership, CPI expanded its capabilities and continued to grow into one of the largest privately-owned companies in Athens, AL. By investing in molding automation and CNC machining, he positioned Cast Products for further growth as it pursued opportunities outside of the emergency vehicle industry that required higher volume and more complex casting requirements. ​ Fast forward to today, Cast Products has transformed into an industry-leading design and manufacturing company focused on cast aluminum components. Still family-owned, CPI is in its third generation of leadership with Colby Medlen as the Chief Operating Officer and Colin McMurry as as the Chief Financial Officer and VP of Sales. With over 100,000 square feet and 200+ employees, Cast Products has become the premier source for designing, engineering, an d manufacturing custom aluminum castings while continuing to develop and manufacture its larg e catalog of products for the specialty vehicle industry. Producing over 30,000 parts per week – most of them with finished or post-machined surfaces – our products can be found on major brands in the marine, commercial vehicle, specialty vehicle, utility trailer, and recreational and trucking markets. ​ Since 1979, we have relentlessly pursued the latest in casting and surface finishing technology. From pre-design to tooling to daily manufacturing, we feel confident that our quality and overall value offer cannot be matched for aluminum components.

  • MANUFACTURING | CPI - Cast Products Inc.

    Manufacturing Aluminum Castings We’re not your ordinary aluminum foundry. We can mold and finish aluminum castings with incredible precision and repeatability using our state-of-the-art equipment. We utilize the latest sand molding technology to offer low and high-volume production with best-in-class pricing and surface finishing. Core Manufacturing If you’re not in the foundry business, you may have never heard of cores. But for us, it is an integral capability that allows us to offer hollow and back-drafted features in final production castings. A sand-shell core is performed, through separate tooling and molding, and then inserted into the primary mold to shape the metal casting in ways it cannot be shaped by the primary pattern itself. CNC Machining Combining the precision and repeatability of CNC machining with the economies gained from molding cast aluminum allows endless possibilities in metal manufacturing. We are able to cut complex geometries into our aluminum castings using the latest technology in CNC machining. Powder Coating Powder coat is one of the fastest-growing metal finishes in the industry. Its unlimited color and texture options in addition to its corrosive-resistant properties make it an excellent choice for product applications. We are experts at combining our surface finish experience with our powder coating technology to offer unlimited gloss, texture, and color variations. Polishing & Finishing Polishing and finishing are the backbone of our manufacturing operation. We understand that the best casting cannot overcome substandard finishing and we have built an unlimited toolbox of finishing options for our customers. We have over 35,000 square feet dedicated solely to polishing, cosmetic grinding, flat grinding, sandblasting, shot blasting, and vibratory finishing. Plastic Routing We are able to design, fabricate, and assemble simple and complex plastic components utilizing our state-of-the-art CNC routing machines. We specialize in cutting HDPE, PVC, ABS, and other types of plastic – both in low and high-volume production runs. Redefining industry standards one part at a time. We utilize the latest sand casting technology to offer low & high-volume production with best-in-class surface finishing & pricing.
