Our ISO 9001 Certified Pattern Shop
Our Norwich facility features a well-equipped pattern shop located close to our foundry, housing some of the manufacturing industry’s most advanced CAD and CNC machining equipment. With over 85 years of innovation in custom pattern-making services, Farrar Corporation is renowned as one of the premier pattern shops in America.
At Farrar Corporation, we believe that the finished quality of a ductile iron casting is largely determined by the quality of the pattern from which it’s cast.
That’s why we insist on designing and manufacturing our own patterns in house, utilizing precision CAD models to produce CNC machined patterns.
