General Business Review
- Del Sol takes a straight forward review approach. We call our approach to foundry management consulting "forest for the trees". For us, we can walk into your foundry, and since we do not live there, we can see many issues you have been walking past for years. Often, we can help your operation and organization by simply being able to see and analyze the forest because we are not stuck within the trees.
- Del Sol offers world class airset and greensand molding design and review. Whether you need to update a few pieces of equipment, or need design a brand new foundry, we have the experience to help.
- Significant experience in operations, equipment, and system design allow us to quickly analyze and implement improvements in your foundry.
- What we are best at is coming to your foundry, gaining an insight as to what you want to accomplish with your molding or core department, reviewing current capabilities, and then offering real, hands on solutions. Our specialty in molding system review is taking a current system which may or may not be performing up to task, reorganizing it and adding only necessary equipment to accomplish your goals. We are very good in this arena and can offer customer references to support this position.
"You have the innate ability to analyze projects with an uncanny sense of forethought in a very short amount of time. You just don’t see that in people anymore."
