UHS Students Tour Wagstaff Inc. Through "Business After School" Program

Founded in 1946, Wagstaff, Inc., a Spokane, Washington based manufacturer, provides machinery, technology, and service to enable aluminum producers to transform molten aluminum into solid shapes – “billets” (rounds) and “ingots” (slabs) using “direct chill” casting. The direct chill casting process uses water to chill molten aluminum in order to solidify it into desired shapes for further processing by sheet, plate, extrusion, rod, and forged part manufacturing. Around the world, aluminum producers look to Wagstaff for the know-how and equipment to safely cast aluminum. Middle school and high school students had the opportunity to learn about different occupations and opportunities in manufacturing, get a tour of Wagstaff's facilities, and work in small teams to solve a manufacturing-related problem.
