Tennessee Foundry Expansion

Progress Made on New Lodge Foundry

By: Lodge Cast Iron / April 26, 2017

We're making quick progress on our new cast iron foundry in South Pittsburg, Tennessee! Here's an update on our construction so far:

Progress Made on New Lodge Foundry

We broke ground on the new 127,000 square foot Lodge foundry in mid-2016. It is located in South Pittsburg, Tennessee on the same campus as our current foundry and will be operational later this year.

When the facility is complete we expect to employ 92 more people in the local area than we did before. The new foundry includes a melt center, sand system, and two sand molding machines, increasing our manufacturing capacity by 75%. We are also nearing the completion of a 200,000 square foot warehouse located a few miles away, just across the Tennessee River from our main campus.

Lodge was founded in South Pittsburg, Tennessee in 1896 and has produced American-made cast iron cookware in the same location for over 120 years. You can watch how we make cast iron in our Tennessee foundry in this behind-the-scenes video.
