Foundry News Story


Plaisance Advisors announced today that Managing Director John Waller has completed the sale of a foundry and machine shop for one of his clients, a Fortune 100 company.  The fully equipped foundry and machine shop is a leading manufacturer of erosive and corrosive-resistant centrifugal pump components primarily for mining, power generation, oil and gas exploration and production, pulp and paper production, ethanol production, and other industrial markets.  It produces, among other items, highly complex pump impellers and pump housings.
