Foundry Brothers was founded by three brothers with a strange fascination with manufacturing and metalworking.
We cut our teeth in the manufacturing world making custom parts for industrial applications in our other family-run business, Electrowind (www.electro-wind.com for a shameless plug). In fact, we've actually been working together since 2004 and it's amazing that we haven't killed each other yet. Instead, we actually get along and probably spend too much time with each other.
Over the years, we've honed our skills cutting industrial products but kept running across opportunities to do art, signage, and other personal projects. We experimented with cutting thick metals, plastic, wood, granite, quartz, glass, carbon fiber, stone, pumpkin, and pretty much anything we could get our hands on. We also had many requests from friends and family for custom work.
This led to us producing a lot of custom metal art over the years including team logos (Toronto Blue Jays, Dallas Cowboys, Toronto Maple Leafs-we're Canadian so a lot of hockey team requests, eh?); car logos (Ferrari, Dodge Ram, Pontiac Firebird); firepit rings; monogram pieces for wedding gifts; fence inserts; wine racks; and much more.
The thing is, we always jumped at the chance to do these custom projects. That's because every project was fun, challenging and usually ended up in a beautiful conversation piece for the owner.
That desire to make something beautiful and unique, something that is uniquely you, is something we haven't let go of. Your inspiration; your favorite team; your family monogram; your hobby or your story gave us inspiration to expand and Foundry Brothers was born. Foundry Brothers makes art the industrial way. We’re no Picasso by any means, but every piece is waterjet machined and pain-stakingly hand-finished to create metal art that is unique, expressive and sexier than a mutha!
Plus, we are a real manufacturing business. You can come to our shop if you're Canadian or can get through border security; walk our floors; hear the sounds of lathes and routers; feel the heat of the waterjet tank on a midsummer day; and of course, you can always reach us with your questions and ideas.
