O’Fallon Casting is Customer Driven: OFC’s mission goes beyond delivering “good parts on time” but also to delighting its customers every time with prompt and professional service. As a small company operating in a small international market O’Fallon Casting strives to earn the loyalty of its customers and to become their preferred choice for investment castings.
O’Fallon Casting is an Engineering Company: OFC’s philosophy is that when customers are pleased by their casting designs that they will be inclined to design more of them. All of OFC’s Customer Points of Contact are degreed engineers that will quickly answer technical questions or provide feedback on new designs. O’Fallon Casting also works collaboratively with its customer engineers through its Concurrent Engineering Service to help optimize their casting designs.
The O’Fallon Casting University: The OFCU is a free educational resource available to customers of O’Fallon Casting. Over the past four years O’Fallon Casting has taught more than 900 customer engineers with these offerings.

O’Fallon Casting is Expanding Design Options: Over the past several years OFC has introduced three significant alloys to the market that provide Engineers with new options to making their designed products better:
- Metal Matrix Composite alloys enhance lightweight aluminum with improved mechanical property attributes for stiffness, vibration dampening, wear resistance, high thermal conductivity and a low coefficient of thermal expansion.
- A20X high property aluminum is the world’s strongest commercially available aluminum alloy.
- IC100 is OFC’s investment cast version of Materion Corporation’s ToughMet® family of copper-nickel-tin-bronze alloys. IC100 makes available the stiffness, strength and lubricity of ToughMet in configurations cast to near-net-shape.
O’Fallon Casting an Industry Leader: OFC is an innovative modern, high-technology foundry and a recognized industry leader. O’Fallon Casting’s expertise is an industry source for published articles, technical papers and is sought often as event speakers. O’Fallon Casting practices an “open door” policy and frequently provides tours to display its technology to customers, university students, civic leaders or to fellow industry professionals.
