Western Bronze Inc is an innovative non-ferrous foundry founded in 1946. Since 1954 WBI has been producing quality castings for the naval, industrial, commercial and art industries. The strong work ethic and insight of the founders, the Kotowitz family and the Zepko family, has accounted for the rapid growth of the company. The president, Daniel Kotowitz, who has been running the business for twenty-five years, is no exception when it comes to hard work ethics and integrity. WBI has led the industry with their skilled craftmanship and engineering capabilities. Highly technical government work is WBI's market niche. Many foundries have difficulty following the stringent government codes and regulations. Besides the chemical and physical reports that are routinely done on site, many of WBI's castings are subjected to x-ray and die pentrant testing to insure the quality of the casting. The smallest infracture would appear on these intensely technical tests.WBI has a designed quality control manual for government sourcing and procedures.
