SF&E has spent the last four years prioritizing continuous improvement efforts around the foundry to advance quality and overall performance for customers. Progress has involved new equipment purchases, production process changes, separating commercial work from high specification work, introducing (and bringing back) new alloys, as well as new partnerships with vetted third parties to supplement capacity. SF&E’s investment in its people, such as Talwar, progresses the foundry’s technical capabilities.

“We have been fortunate to work with Vijay for the past several months through a consultation relationship to further improve our processes here at the foundry,” shares Jim Stachowiak, President and CEO of Stainless Foundry & Engineering. “Vijay has an impressive portfolio of experience and proficiency in the key industries and core parts we excel in as a foundry, as well as extensive knowledge in metal mixes and melts. Having him join the team is a huge advantage for SF&E and our customers.”

Talwar’s process engineering and foundry background spans across industries such as food and beverage, defense, and oil. Talwar is Six Sigma Black Belt certified, as well as versed in a wide array of alloys. Some of those alloys are stainless steel, non-galling alloys, copper-base alloys, carbon, and low alloy steels; corrosion and heat resistant alloys as well as high alloys like invar, Inconel, IN-100, aluminum alloys, cast iron, and ductile iron. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Metallurgical Engineering from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, India.
