Non-ferrous metal casting – Practised values

With the integration of a foundry for Glutz in 2008, a long-held dream was fulfilled: preserving a valuable cultural heritage and artistic craftsmanship for posterity. In consideration of traditions and values, we have re-oriented the foundry for the future and will make historical models and the foundry accessible to the public.

With high-quality non-ferrous casting, we express our clear commitment to traditional craftsmanship with products for higher demands for representative buildings and cultural heritage. We work with the skill of a craftsman and in the original style for all of our reproductions:elegant brass fittings, historical door knockers, stylish furniture fittings, noble old-timer decorations, artesian wells and traditional cowbells. We commission renowned artists such as Markus Raetz, Hedwig Hayoz Häfeli, Stefan Pauli and others for art castings to create unique sculptures and moulds. Their visions take shape in the professional hands of our founders.

Carrying on the tradition with modern means


The metal masterpieces are cast according to ancient craftsmanship and finished with the highest precision. Despite the use of modern technology, to this day nothing significant has changed in the casting production process. The casting models are formed by hand in sand, then filled with glowing hot brass or bronze. We implement any generally necessary or desired model adaptations in our model assembly. After it hardens, the rough cast is separated and roughly polished before the subsequent mechanical machining can take place.

We can cast unit weights of up to 30 kg. Please contact us for more information about the maximum possible unit size.
