Farrar’s Monthly Message
The Farrar website continues to improve and showcase our capabilities and our services. We were blessed with a summer intern, Carson Byers, who is attending Kansas State University and has helped Farrar springboard into the social media realm and keep our website, social media pages, and blog active and full of new and refreshing content.
A Big question in the manufacturing sector is “how is your supply chain?”. While we have seen some volatility in pricing, the Farrar supply chain remains intact. To align with our Core Value of Continuous Improvement, vendor evaluations are ongoing, and we continue to evaluate primary, secondary, and even tertiary suppliers.
In July, Farrar celebrated our inaugural Family Day. This was held in Norwich on Saturday, July 23rd and in Manhattan on Saturday, July 30th. We had excellent employee turnout with each employee bringing with them an average of four people. Our inaugural Family Day included open tours of our foundry, pattern shop, Norwich machine shop and Manhattan machine shop. At each location we gave away one complete custom-made Farrar Corporation branded corn-hole board set (complete with Farrar colored bags and Farrar colored lighting), a food truck, and a handful of games for all ages.
As we enter the heart of summer, August temperatures can become stifling, please be sure you stay hydrated, stay cool, and stay thirsty my friends. We thank you for your confidence in us to provide you castings and machined complete castings for your company needs.
About Farrar Corporation
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 to focus only on providing cast and machined parts to O.E.M. customers. In the early 1990’s, Farrar began producing Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) in addition to the standard ASTM grades of Ductile Iron. 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 pattern design and production throughout the continental United States.
Farrar Corporation is a vertically integrated company providing ductile iron castings, machining and total quality service to original equipment manufacturing companies.
Farrar Corporation strives to be a company that provides the highest quality products, services and turnkey solutions.
Company Core Values
Farrar Corporation operates with integrity, stewardship, teamwork, continuous improvement and a commitment to creative value for our customers while building long term relationships.
