On July 14th, 2018, Faircast Inc. celebrated it’s one year anniversary by throwing a company picnic for all current Employees, Board Members, Owners, and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce. The picnic provided a lunch, games, and a great time to socialize and take a breather from the Foundry’s work week. Food was catered by Hy-Vee Grill with delicious burgers, chips, sodas, and cookies (Oh, and Milk provided by Aaron Dyes Family!). Games consisted of a hilarious egg toss for all kids and employees, potato sack races, and corn-hole. Faircast Inc. Tumblers were provided to all employees and small gift bags were given to all kids attending.
Faircast Inc. held the picnic in the Jefferson County Parks at Shelter #3. It was a beautiful location, plenty of shade, and a beautiful view of the pond and wooded areas.
Faircast Inc. would like to give a big THANK YOU for all employees, customers, and owners who have made this first year go as smoothly as possible. We truly appreciate every single one of you and we are excited to see what the next years to come will bring!
Faircast, Inc. celebrated its first birthday on 6.28.18 and we couldn’t be more excited about our future, nor could we have done it without YOU, our loyal customers. We also wouldn’t be here today with our employees – each and every one of them bring something different to the table. Now more than ever; in this ever-changing economy, these foundrymen and women are faced with, “thinking outside the box,” and doing things a little different to get the job done more effectively and efficiently. The local groups of owners have been very upfront and honest. They truly care about the foundry and the people who keep it running. Monthly catered meals, our first annual picnic and a 401K contribution are just a few things our owners have done for the employees. We have also been given the opportunity to seek out and set up training with American Foundry Society and the Institute for our team. Furthering education and bringing new knowledge into the foundry is very important to the growth of the company, and we plan to do just that! Installing new equipment, clearing space and moving things around to make our foundry as efficient as possible.

On Saturday, November 25th, Faircast Inc. hosted a benefit to raise money to support two employees that were in a four wheeling accident outside of work. Both employees were on emergency flights to different hospitals where surgeries and recovery took place. In the spirit of giving, donations and time were gifted to create a Dinner and Silent Auction Benefit to help cover some expenses.
With a month to plan, family members, friends, and coworkers asked for donations to create baskets, provide food, and give the Benefit the best chance at success. Unfortunately there are too many donors to list by name, but they were honored with every donation at the Benefit.
The Sondheim Center provided Faircast Inc. with an incredible discounted price to host the Benefit at, and out of all places, on top of the stage itself! The mood was perfect; friends, family, laughter, music, and fun. The evening started out with people lining up for bids, devouring the donated food (Hy-Vee, Yummy’s, Revelations, Fairfield Golf & Country Club, and Sweet & Saucey’s), listening to live music by local musicians Curtis Oliver and Rod Rider, winning the 60″ TV raffle, and then some fun karaoke.
Many individuals, groups, companies, and communities helped allow this Benefit to be successful with over 10,000 dollars raised. We are so proud, as a company, to see all the loving and helping hands it took to make this work.
Thank you for all of those who gave their time, effort, passion, and money to this worthy cause.
