Our Mission: Advancing the manufacturing, recycling and use of non-ferrous castings.

The Non-Ferrous Founders’ Society (NFFS) was founded in 1943 at the height of WWII to help non-ferrous foundries advocate for their collective interests when dealing with the War Production Board, whose directives severely limited the ability of non-ferrous foundries to obtain the metals they needed to manufacture both war goods and to satisfy casting needs for domestic consumer industries.


Today, our vision is “to be the elite provider of support, guidance and advocacy for the non-ferrous metal casting industry.” To this end, the Society has developed a full range of programs and services designed to help foundry leaders successfully operate their businesses. NFFS member foundries utilize virtually every casting process. The principal metals cast in most non-ferrous foundries are aluminum and copper alloys (brass & bronze). However, some non-ferrous foundries may also pour magnesium, zinc, or other nonferrous materials. Some of our member foundries also pour ferrous materials, producing iron and/or steel metal castings.

In 2018, NFFS expanded membership eligibility to the suppliers and service providers who sell equipment, supplies, consumables, and any other goods and services used in the manufacture of metal castings, under the new category of Associate Membership. NFFS recognized that suppliers play an important role in the health and success of our industry—when foundries are connected with high-quality, innovative products and solutions, everyone benefits.
