The Lite Metals Company had its beginnings as the A. C. Williams Company, founded in 1844. The original foundry began by producing iron castings and over the next 150+ years went through many changes.
The current foundry produces magnesium and aluminum sand castings mostly for the helicopter industry with commercial applications in the racing sector and other miscellaneous markets. The foundry received its AS9100 certification in November 2007.
Today, as a small, family owned and operated business, Lite Metals produces quality magnesium and aluminum sand castings from ounces up to 200 pounds. They are affiliated with their sister company AirCraft Wheels LLC located in Avon, OH.
