AFS has issued a call for papers for its 121st Metalcasting Congress held in Milwaukee April 25-27, 2017.
Members of Congress are back in their states for the month of August and then again in October. This is an ideal time for metalcasters and suppliers across the country to host their representatives and senators for educational tours at their facilities.
The company announced plans to invest $97.5 million and add up to 150 new employees for its facility in Shelbyville, Indiana.
The investment is expected to preserve 170 jobs at the plant, which is a supplier to the automotive industry. Kentucky governor Matt Bevin made the announcement, and welcomed the infusion of funds to the facility and state as a whole.
The two casting facilities, located in Rzeszow, Poland, specialize in aerospace engine components, with technology for manufacturing and cost-efficient processes.
