Armorcast

Armorcast - Birdsboro, Pennsylvania

Originally part of Birdsboro Steel Foundry and Machine Company. This plant was constructed
in 1944 to provide space for the manufacture of tanks for the military. Sherman and
Patton tanks were produced here through the Korean War. Operation ceased in 1988 after
failure to renew a contract and also a strike. There are multiple bays, some up to
1480 feet long and 50 feet high. It is currently being demolished for salvage as part
of a redevelopment effort.
