What We Do:

Producing Better Tubing Through Centrifugal Casting

We specialize in centrifugal casting, a process that delivers high-quality, precision metal tubes.

Our diverse capabilities include centrifugal casting, heat treating, CNC machining, metallurgical testing, and more.

Who We Are:

Empowering Talent, Elevating Expertise

Pioneered by three individuals with expertise in centrifugal casting, Spuncast initially produced simple, raw, unheat-treated castings. Over the years, our commitment to growth has significantly expanded our capabilities, focusing strongly on customization.

As our company flourished and our product range expanded, so did the demand for skilled professionals. In response to this and recognizing the value of our team, we implemented an Employee Stock Option Plan (ESOP), fostering an environment where success is mutual and ideas for improvement are shared and celebrated.

Today, our workforce of over 125 people includes highly skilled machine operators, engineers, metallurgists, and quality assurance experts. Additionally, our indispensable maintenance, accounting, and sales teams are essential to the company’s success.
