The mission of Western Bronze, Inc. is to create high-quality non-ferrous castings that exceed customer expectations.
WBI's priorities include customer satisfaction and employee competence and training.
Established in 1946
Western Bronze, Inc. (WBI) is an innovative non-ferrous foundry. Since 1954, WBI had been producing quality castings for the naval, industrial, commercial and art industries. The strong work ethic and insight of the founders, the Kotowitz family and the Zepko family, has accounted for the rapid growth of the company. The President, Daniel Kotowitz, has owned the business since 1990, and is no exception when it comes to hard work and integrity.
WBI has led the industry with their skilled craftsmanship and engineering capabilities. Highly technical government work is WBI's market niche. Many foundries have difficulty following the stringent government codes and regulations. Besides the chemical and physical reports, that are routinely done onsite, many of WBI's castings are subjected to x-ray and penetrant inspection testing per government and customer's requirements. WBI has a designated Quality Management System and Manufacturing Procedures in place for government and commercial compliance.
