Since 1925, Reliance Foundry has maintained the best in quality, service, and expertise
Reliance Foundry Co. Ltd. delivers the highest-quality stock and custom-designed products for architectural site furnishings, traffic management, and industrial applications. Since 1925, Reliance Foundry has built upon a long tradition of metal casting expertise to become an award-winning supplier for high-profile and everyday needs across North America.
Reliance Foundry was first incorporated by four foundry workers in 1925. It grew to become Vancouver’s largest working foundry—fulfilling contracts for municipal authorities and companies in the mining and forestry industries. During World War II, employees worked 48 hours per week, casting 10 tons of metal per day to supply parts for the Allied forces’ war effort. In 1966, a fire at the original Vancouver site forced the company to relocate to a new location in Surrey. By the 1990s, Reliance Foundry began outsourcing production to increase the range of offered products and expand beyond regional services to become a continental supplier. The company moved to its current location in 2005, and in 2012 was awarded the Surrey Board of Trade’s Business Excellence Award.
Reliance Foundry supplies outdoor products and metal casting services to clients across North America. We work with architectural design firms, property managers, installation contractors, city planners, and private businesses to find the best solutions for our customers. We are committed to ongoing innovation and development to suit a growing range of needs and applications. Our products are designed to suit any outdoor application, from high-profile architectural buildings to everyday industrial and commercial locations.
