Foundry and Casting Chemicals

Industry Overview:
 

Civilization has depended on foundries to shape metal for centuries, and modern markets are driving more efficient and sophisticated casting and metalworking techniques. Foundry and casting chemicals are at the heart of this evolution, providing foundries with the means to: fine-tune products; create new and more complex castings, moldings, and cores; and meet health, safety, and environmental standards.

Our society is currently motivated by improving and reversing humanity’s effects on the environment and on one another. Chemicals play a large part in helping foundries to protect both their employees and the surrounding environment. Both internal and external emissions can be minimized and controlled through the utilization of these chemicals, and they also assist in the sand reclamation process, allowing foundries to repurpose sand from molds to either create new molds, or for other miscellaneous uses.

Common Applications:
 
  • Base sands – olivine, silica, etc.
  • Fluxes
  • Binder chemicals -- resins, sodium silicate, etc.
  • Parting compounds – talc, graphite, mineral ils, etc.
  • Nucleating agents – inoculants
  • Ferrous, non-ferrous
  • Refractoriness, chemical inertness, permeability, etc.
  • Molds – sand casting, investment casting, die casting, etc.
  • Alloys
  • Refining
  • Filtration
  • Waste reduction, recycling, reuse
  • Metallurgy
  • Additives

I had been looking for some good sales people through my own networks and word of mouth for the last few years. Unfortunately with little or no success. I finally decided to work with an executive search firm to help me find prospects. After doing a lot of due diligence to try to determine which company might be the best fit for our needs, The Ropella Group seemed like the right choice. In fact, I cannot imagine having made a better choice. Working with them has been very easy. They are extremely responsive to any request that I made; the company introduction document that they created was very much to the point and hit the perfect notes of what makes our company successful and most importantly the quality of the candidates was to me, amazingly to the point. In fact, they offered me the resumes of 12 candidates and actually I believe that every single one of them would have been successful for the position of Executive VP that we were seeking. In the end, we hired the best candidate, who was also (we learned later) who Ropella believed would be our best choice. I would give the Ropella Group and Robbie Ropella in particular a 10 out of 10 rating. We will certainly look to Ropella again in future when seeking new executive or sales employees.
