About Company

Port Townsend Foundry is a custom and production nonferrous foundry that has been in continuous operation since 1983. We specialize in marine hardware, but also produce a wide range of other products, from architectural hardware to custom memorial benches.

We use only the best materials available. Our castings are produced in silicon bronze (Everdur), manganese bronze, aluminum bronze, white bronze, and aluminum alloys. All of our ingots are supplied by an American smelting operation that specializes in recycled materials. These alloys are all held to the highest standards.

We tool, pour, and finish our castings in-house at our facility in Port Townsend, Washington. Our reputation has been built on hard work and customer satisfaction, and we are proud to use the words "made in the USA."

History of Port Townsend Foundry

The original Port Townsend Foundry was established in 1883. Located on the waterfront in downtown Port Townsend, Washington, it manufactured street cars, steam engines, and hardware for all of the local Victorian mansions. At its height in 1889, the company employed around 250 people. During this time, the foundry manufactured two passenger steamliners and two tugs on-site, as well as many of the now-famous castings still in existence on the city's building facades.

A century later, in 1983, Pete Langley re-established Port Townsend Foundry, with the same level of craftsmanship, dedication, and integrity in mind. Following several discussions with a city engineer, it was apparent this would not be as easy as previously thought. After much consideration—and an extensive review of city codes—he was able to establish a portable foundry on a flatbed trailer within two blocks of the original foundry site.

​​Now, many challenges and several decades later, the business spans multiple buildings and has developed a core group of employees who are now producing some of the most timeless and unique castings around. The use of heritage techniques as well as modern technology allows Port Townsend Foundry's craftspeople to produce pieces that we hope will someday themselves be a part of history.
