Based in Erie, PA, Arrow Castings has been delivering precision aluminum
castings since Fred and Margaret “Peggy” Reed purchased and incorporated the
company in 1959. After Fred’s passing in 2005, I (Fred’s youngest daughter)
became President. Dan King, a 40+ year
employee, continued to serve as the General Manager. In 2012, Dan and I bought out the remaining
Reed family members and are proud to be co-owners of a company that has
maintained its reputation for quality parts, on time, and at a fair price.
Many of the members of our team have relatives who either are working for us
or have retired, having
passed on their knowledge to those who have followed in their footsteps. Over
half of our employees have
worked for us for at least 25 years and have expertise that is hard to beat.
Some of our customers were with the company when the Reed family
purchased it and have maintained
close relationships throughout the years. Our customers vary from an
artisan's studio to some of the
largest corporations in the world. We make products from simple hinge posts
to critical engine parts
on Boeing 737s and Sikorsky helicopters. We strive to work with our customers
to produce castings that will meet their requirements in the most economical
manner possible, often offering suggestions about tooling and production
changes that might save them money or lead time.
Our shipments leave our foundry proudly labeled with and American flag
stating the parts were Made
in America. We are committed to producing your parts in-house and do not
outsource our manufacturing
processes. We hope you will want us to join your team.
Karen R. Prior, President
