Potentia buys New England foundry

Potentia Manufacturing Group has purchased New England Foundry, LLC, formerly the Anbar division of Edson International. Located in Taunton, Massachusetts, New England Foundry—which specializes in sand casting of aluminum, brass, and bronze chiefly for the marine market, as well as aerospace and industrial markets—continues to manufacture its products in its updated Taunton facility.

The addition of New England Foundry to the Potentia family of manufacturing companies will provide value-added, synergistic opportunities for customers of the foundry and for clients of other Potentia companies, according to David N. Slutz, managing director of Potentia.

“When customers see the Potentia name,” he said, “they know they are dealing with a reputable company that provides exceptional customer service, fine American workmanship, and cost-effective access to other precision machining and metalworking services they may need to complete their projects in a timely manner.”

In addition to New England Foundry, other Potentia Manufacturing Group companies include Franklin Sheet Metal, ITAL-TECH Machined Products, Jet Machined Products, MacDiarmid Precision Machining, and Trilap Precision Finishing.
