Great Lakes Bay Manufacturers Association Newsletter – March 2021
Our Member Spot this month is Bernier Cast Metals, Inc. They are a successful family business that initially started out as Model Aluminum Foundry in 1945. At the time it was Saginaw’s only foundry dealing exclusively in aluminum castings. Core driers were the main production item and were purchased by local foundries in the automotive industry. In 1972 the foundry changed names to Bernier Cast Metals, Inc., and over the years it has expanded beyond aluminum castings, incorporating brass, bronze, copper, grey iron, ductile iron, steel, stainless steel, and zinc into the mix.
According to recent customer surveys, the reasons customers return with repeat business to Bernier is due to their high-quality parts, on-time delivery, and fair market pricing. But what truly differentiates Bernier from other casting companies is their friendliness, responsiveness, and ability to communicate, making it a hassle-free way for customers to do business.
