PWU/PURCH DS:le 2/27/2008


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution will authorize the 2008 purchase and delivery of replacement castings from the Neenah Foundry Company for $20,439.48, payable from the stormwater fund.


Replacement castings must be the same as existing Neenah Foundry castings used throughout the city. The foundry must meet the exact dimensions of the heavy duty castings to ensure that all frames and lids are interchangeable, especially when utility operations orders replacements.


To date, Neenah Foundry Company is the only foundry that has tooled up to city specifications. Other foundries have shown some interest in the past in making castings to our standard specifications, but not enough to make the initial investment required for specific tooling/molds for the Duluth castings.


Neenah Foundry Company is headquartered in Neenah, Wisconsin, with a regional office in Shakopee, Minnesota. Requisition No. 08-0215
