Our History

Our story began in 1920 with a single foundry in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. William J. Grede purchased what was then called the Liberty Foundry, just west of Milwaukee, and named it Grede Foundries, Inc. Today, we’re one of the top metal casters in the industry, operating 10 facilities across North America and employing 3,000 team members. 

Over these 100 years, our customers have helped build our very civilization. And we’ve been right there alongside them. As industries boomed and technologies advanced, our gray and ductile iron castings were there to fortify the machines and vehicles that shaped the world.
