About the Texas Cast Metals Association
The Texas Cast Metals Association (TCMA) membership is currently comprised of foundries throughout the state, engineering firms, environmental consultants, scrap metal dealers, and energy consultants. However, the association is diversifying to include other metal industry members such as die casters, steel mills, and other foundries, as well as other peripheral businesses who share a common goal in promoting the needs of the metals industry.

The TCMA was formed in 1992 to promote the metal casting industry and educate legislators at both state and federal levels, while promoting legislation concerning such issues as clean air, storm water, and safety in the work place.
