Allied Organizations

Groups of allied organizations have been formed in areas where metalcasting facilities are a significant part of the regional manufacturing base. These collaborative groups inform and support our industry through lobbying and other advocacy efforts. They stay abreast of current and potential legislation and business regulations.Typically, allied organizations are the regional voice of metalcasting. They frequently work with local AFS Chapters.
