About Farrar Corporation

Machine Shop Manhattan, KS Facility
Cast Iron Foundry, Norwich

Our History

Farrar Corporation began in 1933 as a blacksmith and repair shop. The green sand foundry was added in 1967 as a way to make our own castings and then grew to the point that Farrar dropped its own product line and focused wholly on providing build to print products. In the early 1990’s, Farrar added the capability to produce Austempered Ductile Iron as a side product to their standard ductile iron Grades. Farrar is a family owned/privately held corporation that is currently in its third generation of ownership. Through the years we have grown into a nationally recognized company known for our service, specializing in providing finish machined ductile iron castings and assemblies.

Farrar Corporation is your single source for design and technical assistance, pattern design, casting production, finish machining, heat treating, painting and assembly for industrial and manufacturing customers.
