The World Foundry Organization is the recognised centre of strategic foundry knowledge, designed to develop, enhance and improve the production of metal castings; through the latest technical and sustainable industry practices.
Through the involvement of the member associations, in 30 countries the WFO creates a network of technical knowledge and resource that is a vital tool to every foundry association, foundry and foundry worker throughout the world.
The WFO is a neutral body that represents the collective needs of the members on a global stage.
The Principal and important elements of the WFO are:
• Executive board members
• Member organisation
• World Foundry Congresses and Technical Forums.
The fees for the WFO are calculated on the tonnage of castings produced in the country of the member associations
Fees for 2016 will be:
More than 4 Million Tonnes - €3,200.00
Between 1 and 4 Million Tonnes - €2,250.00
Between 200,000 and 1 Million Tonnes - €2,000.00
Less than 200,000 Tonnes - €1,550.00
Where no organised Association or the Tonnage output is very small an associate rate for membership of €750.00 can be paid on a limited period basis and at the discretion of the Executive Board.
Data used is based on the Casting Census published by Modern Castings in December of each year, unless specific data can be provided by the member association.
