German founded. American made.
Oregon Pattern & Foundry was founded by Fred Heine, a German born pattern maker who moved to Oregon from Los Angeles. Fred's pattern making skills and reputation were second to none. He built the company as a pattern shop capable of tackling any pattern regardless of size or complexity.
As the company grew, so did the demand for quality castings, not just the patterns that make them, so Oregon Pattern became more of a foundry than just a pattern shop. By the early nineties, the company was considered the premier casting house in the Willamette Valley for high quality aluminum and bronze commercial castings.
In January of 2007, Oregon Pattern & Manufacturing was purchased by TL Becker Corp and renamed Oregon Pattern and Foundry.
In January of 2010 TL Becker Corp purchased Eugene Aluminum and Brass Co. in order to strengthen the position of the company in the market and to provide a larger factory for continued growth.
