Lee Brass® Castings for OEM

Lee Brass has been casting and machining low lead alloy components for Original Equipment Manufacturers for over 40 years for a wide range of applications. These products range from shower and faucet valves to a large percentage of US Fire Hydrants which have at least 10-15 pounds of Lee Brass fittings in each one. Lee Brass, in Anniston Alabama, has 500,000 sq. ft. under roof, and over 250 employees that design and assure quality workmanship and service through every step in the casting process from pattern making all the way through machining. All of our work is performed “in-house- and on site". Although Lee Brass is a high volume casting and machining supplier, we are also able to competitively meet your low volume or even prototype sand casting requirements. Our modern and completely equipped pattern shop is manned by our expert pattern makers. Our foundry utilizes automatic and semi-automatic molding lines, which allow us to competitively produce over two million pounds per month. At Lee Brass, we can simultaneously handle 12 different alloys, including no-leads, and we are able to shift from one job to another in a matter of minutes. Our customers receive top quality products at competitive prices.
