national industry 331529

Other Nonferrous Metal Foundries (except Die-Casting)


This U.S. industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in pouring molten nonferrous metals (except aluminum) into molds to manufacture nonferrous castings (except nonferrous die-castings and aluminum castings). Establishments in this industry purchase nonferrous metals, such as copper, nickel, lead, and zinc, made in other establishments. Cross-references.. Establishments primarily engaged in:

Manufacturing nonferrous die-castings--are classified in U.S. Industry 331523, Nonferrous Metal Die-Casting Foundries;

Pouring molten aluminum into molds to manufacture aluminum castings--are classified in U.S. Industry 331524, Aluminum Foundries (except Die-Casting); and

Manufacturing nonferrous castings and further manufacturing them into finished products--are classified based on the specific finished product.

The immediate parent of national industry 331529 is international industry 33152: Nonferrous Metal Foundries
