Modern Casting Features SF&E Careful Customer Contract Review

Careful Customer Contract Review – Modern Casting

Foundry Engineering

In March 2021, American Foundry Society’s issue of Modern Casting highlighted the importance of careful customer contract review and quality engineering at Stainless Foundry & Engineering (SF&E). Director of Quality, Mike Porfilio, oversees a team of contract review specialists from diverse professional backgrounds, making sure each element of the customer PO experiences is finely reviewed, specifications are met, quality is maintained, and customer communication is upheld.

Quality Assurance is of most importance to SF&E.

Missing even a single detail can be catastrophic.
