The Iron Foundry Plant for Architectural and Art Castings operating in the town of Kasli of Chelyabinsk region was established in 1747. It is one of the oldest Russian plants where age-old art casting customs and architectural iron-casting crafts for land improvement purposes have been preserved over generations until the present day.
The fame of the Kasli Iron Casting rests both upon the exquisite craftsmanship of the workers as true artists who have managed to turn the crude, heavy-weight metal into the finest grade compliant material, and upon the fine foundry iron for high-quality casting.
Due to the history of the works for almost three centuries and thanks to great talent of the artistic workers and various craftsmen in molding, casting, stamping and dyeing, the Kasli iron castings have become a unique phenomenon among the Russian art industry products and a true Russian cultural and historical asset. Just as more than a century and a half ago, the foundry plant’s products are manufactured today utilizing unique production techniques, in the best Kasli artistic iron casting traditions kept alive by the twelfth generation of the Kasli masters.
In addition to the iron foundry plant, nearly 10 workshops manufacturing products of decorative applied art operate in the town of Kasli.
The Company offers three lines of cast products: architectural castings; memorial, garden, park and monumental cast sculptural castings; and interior art castings. Kasli's lamp posts, fountains and flower stands are commonly used to decorate Russian cities. The Company participates in prestigious large-scale projects: Tsaritsyno museum in Moscow, central area of Grozny and Olympics host city Sochi were decorated with Kasli's ensembles.
Every year, skilled craftsmen expand the product range and increase production capacity.
