Webster Industries to close Tiffin foundry




Tiffin, Ohio — Webster Industries announced this week that they will be discontinuing foundry operations at their Tiffin facility.

The company said in a news release that the move is designed to “build capacity and focus on our growing chain and sprocket business.”

“Over the next six months, we will be phasing out products, customers, processes and equipment that are in the specialty castings category,” the release states. “Our #1 goal is for every employee to stay with Webster and help build capacity to meet our growing demand.”

According to the news release, employees currently working in the foundry will be given the opportunity to “support the other products [Webster] manufactures.”

“We need them and more to support our chain, sprocket and vibratory equipment business,” the release states. “Our desire is to communicate as openly as possible and respect the fact that change is not easy. Thank you for your continued grit and dedication to making a difference.”
