Minncast Steel Foundry was founded in 1971 by Richard Schlener. He established the business in a 2,000 square foot premises on Beech Street in Fridley, Minnesota. The facility had one 50lb Induction Furnace. Richard was the Founder, President and Work Force.

Minncast, Inc. grew with demand and eventually Richard was operating out of three separate buildings in the Fridley area.

In 1981 Richard purchased land and built a 64,000 square foot building on 2 acres which is our current facility.

We are a family owned business. Richard's oldest son Pete Schlener is CEO and Aaron Astleford is President. We currently employ approximately 55 people in our foundry, some of whom have been employed with the company from its very early years. We currently operate two shifts. Minncast is a non-union facility, with a very dedicated work force. Our office staff provides excellent support and superior service to our customers.

Minncast has grown to be an American Leader in the production of High Quality Steel, Stainless Steel, and Ni-Resist Castings.
