Employer Quick Look

Waupaca Foundry, Inc.


Waupaca Foundry has a reputation as solid as the castings we create.

We are the largest producer of gray, ductile, austempered ductile, and compacted graphite iron in the world, melting more than 9,500 tons a day. Our castings are produced using an innovative, customized, high pressure vertical green sand molding process created by a workforce that puts generations of iron casting expertise to work for our customers every day. Those customers trust Waupaca Foundry for high quality iron castings that are consistently the most durable, reliable, and innovative products on the market.


We believe our employees are our number one asset and Waupaca Foundry is committed to providing one of the most comprehensive benefits packages around.
All new employees, should they elect, are automatically enrolled into our core benefits.  These benefits include health and prescription drug insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, short term disability insurance, life and accidental death & dismemberment insurance.

Core benefits are eligible upon the first of the month following 90 days of employment.  During an annual open enrollment on the first of May, eligible employees have the option to change and choose from a variety of coverage options.

Retirement Plan

We believe our employees' financial future in retirement is just as important as the pay check they take home today. At Waupaca Foundry we help mold futures by providing an employee-funded 401k plan with various investment options, as well as generous employer-funded retirement plans.

Health Awareness Together (H.A.T.)

Committed to improving the health of our employees, spouses and retirees, Waupaca Foundry offers a progressive health and wellness program. The vision and ongoing commitment to this program has dramatically contributed to the overall health and well-being of our team. With over 90% participation, the program has helped reduce modifiable health risks and fostered positive culture changes. Employees who elect to participate are not only rewarded with a higher quality and healthier lifestyle, but financially as well.

Employee Assistance Program

Waupaca Foundry is strongly committed to supporting our employees in every aspect of their life. Therefore, we have implemented an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) designed to provide assistance with personal concerns and the challenges of balancing work and personal life. The program is open to employees and their dependents, employee's spouse or significant other, and others permanently residing in an employee's household, related or not.

Of our more than 3,700 employees, about 250 have been with our company more than 25 years. We’re proud that Waupaca Foundry has always been an employer of choice and are dedicated to the team members that have spent their careers with us.
