Our Past
C & L Aluminum Foundry, Inc. was founded in Fort Worth Texas in 1956 by Carl & Lee Killman. The building they occupied at that time had formerly been a neighborhood Washateria. 

The company was then incorporated and purchased by Gordon Killman in 1969.  In 1989 it expanded to better equip itself for the ever increasing demands of its growing customer base.  This expansion included a new metal building for the molding and furnace department, which now housed the new overhead sand system with semi-automated programmable logic control panels. 

The company was then purchased by Gary Ferguson in 1998, where it remained owned and operated until his death 2011. C & L Aluminum Foundry, Inc. was then operated by Tim Schulz until its acquisition In May of 2013 by Schulz Family Properties, Inc.
