Wm. Wright & Associates Makes Major Investment in Alloy Business

On May 8, 2023 “The Monty Heat Treat News” announced that long standing manufacturers rep firm Wm. Wight & Associates in the US Midwest had signed an agreement to represent Sajjan Precision Castings for high temperature alloy components and furnace fixturing (the press release can be found below and at https://themonty.com/wm-wright-associates-now-representing-sajjan-precision-castings/ ). The firm has now taken the next step which is stocking base trays at their Illinois location; “We received our first batch of trays today. Most of these are already spoken for and will go out this week, but we have two more shipments set to arrive within the next week and a half. Once we have inventory built up, we will be able to ship trays for the most common furnaces from stock.”

As far as we know Wm. Wright & Associates are the first firm in North America to stock alloy components provided by an Indian foundry. India is of course renown for very competitive pricing so it will be interesting to see the results of this investment. Certainly if there is any rep firm in North America to be able to launch a project like this it would be the team at Wm. Wright, Jim, KC and Willy Wilbur.
