Fort Recovery Industries, Inc. has installed a new Carat aluminum die cast machine at the Portland Casting Plant. The new 1,500 clamping tonnage machine (built by BuhlerPrince) is the second machine of this size. The Carat will be replacing an older Prince machine. The Carat will provide better process control, improved productivity, standardized machine components, and is more technologically advanced.

The new Carat became operational in October 2017.
