 Customer Policy

(1)  Treat the customers with respect.

(2)  We recognize that our customers are demanding excellence.

(3)  Each customer has his or her Idea of quality.  We want to know what is important to YOU.

(4)  Please don't think of us as a common vendor, rather as an increasingly rare resource of dependable, long-time foundry journeymen!

(5)  We don't quote firm prices without making a sample.

(6)  We provide this service using only certified ingot.

(7)  We don’t guarantee aluminum for polishing!

(8)  By the nature of the beast, foundries are forced to make extras so they can cover their scrap and fill their orders.  I will refer to these extras as internal.  A scrap rate of 10% is not unusual. We recommend that all our higher volume, small parts customers consider purchasing 10% external extras in order to streamline the process for them. We will accept any legitimate rejects at no charge.

(9)  Customer owned patterns are not insured, you leave them with us at your own risk. Some of the patterns left in our, since 1969 storage area, are obsolete. Some have been abandon due to customers that have passed away or simply moved on. If you have not contacted us in the last seven years and have an old pattern or patterns kepped in our foundry, please call us to update your status. Our policy has always been to have the greatest respect for our customer patterns. Every effort is made to contact the owner's of old patterns. Patterns left at Barr Casting Inc. beyond the statute of limitations with out contact infomation will be disposed of or used as we see fit.

(10)  A minimum invoice of $100.00 will apply to all sales.

(11)  Check your patterns. Patterns must be clean, properly drafted and free from grease, oil, parting, buildup, undercuts, bad sticky paint, or roughness. Your castings can not be any better than your patterns!

(12)  Please bring your pattern in clean and ready for molding. We are not a pattern shop.  Requests such as “fill that hole”, “sand that bump,” or “tape the threads,” are the responsibility of the customer.

 We Appreciate Your Business, Thank You!

The manufacturer's only obligation shall be, at our option, to replace any portion that is defective or to refund the purchase price thereof.  The user shall determine the suitability of the product for his intended use, and assume all risks and liability in connection therewith.
