After successful careers in the foundry industry, brothers Rob and Chris Robbins decided to utilize their vast knowledge of the industry and build Performance from the ground up in 2005.  At the time, Performance was built to fill a void in the casting market for a high quality centrifugal foundry specializing in heat resistant castings. Once operating, the progression into static/sand castings was a natural fit and the foundry underwent  a major expansion in 2009 to accomodate the expanding product lines.  Today, Performance is one of the leaders in centrifugal and sand casting products in a large variety of steel, stainless steel, heat resistant and corrosion resistant alloys.
