Consistent Quality. Our on-site casting facility allows us to control billet cost and quality by producing aluminum log directly from (P1020) aluminum ingot. Having a cast house on our premises in our Fonda, NY facility, permits us to reuse/recycle internally generated scrap incurred from the manufacturing process. Aluminum recycling is an important component in both cost control and environmental sustainability. The process of creating aluminum extrusions begins with the manufacturing of precision-formulated billets in our cast house. Using the most current casting technology, our experienced staff creates billets for most of our extrusion needs. (P1020) Aluminum ingot is purchased from primary producers/suppliers in the United States and abroad and delivered to Keymark on a daily basis.
From casting, the logs go through a process of homogenization that eliminates impurities from the core of the log. Our most recent $ 1.2 million dollar state-of-the-art homogenizing oven at our Fonda, NY facility delivers the highest of quality logs to our extrusion department, ensuring that our customers have a premium quality product built into their aluminum extrusions.
