Lodge: A trusted OEM

Lodge Cast Iron has been pursuing the art and science of iron casting since 1896. But we’re not just a cookware business: we also work with partners looking for an OEM iron casting expert.

We’re in the business of cast iron.

As the country’s oldest and most respected Gray Cast Iron Cookware Manufacturer, we’re proud to take the vast capabilities and experience of our foundry and employees and turn them into new opportunities for your business.

Pig Iron
We know quality casting.

As an OEM, we guarantee the same high-quality cast iron surface that we’ve perfected in the cookware business—a high-quality iron surface finish that’s trusted and tested every day. Because we’re a cookware manufacturer, we closely monitor our iron chemistry, only utilizing pig iron, steel slitter, and our own returns as melt stock.
