BVA is a third generation, family-owned and operated business. Established in 1919 as the First World War came to a close, BVA experienced growth and development during the post-war recovery and throughout the “Roaring Twenties”. The declaration of World War II resulted in BVA branching into new foundry work, including die pots required in the manufacture of artillery shells. With the end of the war, BVA transitioned to a job shop, with the region’s steel mills and coal mines as its primary customers. This deep heritage in metals and mining remains with our company to this day.

Following an extended period of steady operations during the 1950s and 1960s, the foundry underwent an extensive transformation during the 1970s. Significant changes included the conversion to “No Bake” sand systems and addition of new furnaces, among other investments. Modernization continued during the 1980s and 1990s, with the installation of additional furnace capacity and a thermal sand reclamation system. In the 21st century,BVA continues to invest and adapt to an increasingly global competitive landscape, building upon the 100 yearsof accumulated know-how and foundry expertise to assist customers in solving even their most demandingcasting-related challenges.
