About Us

A steel casting foundry specializing in complex short run parts since 1981.

Welcome To Hampton Foundry

Where today's ideas becomes tomorrow's solutions.

Hampton Foundry, originally a division of Seabee Cyclinders named Seabee Foundry, started operations in 1981 with six one-ton induction furnaces. In the years that followed, the foundry has doubled in size and capacity.

Today, we provide various industries with castings ranging from low alloy to carbon steels to corrosion and heat resistant steels and special alloys. Additionally, we possess a full line pattern shop, machine shop and heat treatment capabilities. Our strength lies in our ability to quickly and cost effectively produce medium to low quantity runs.
