The Association of Hungarian Foundries is a social structure managing the professional business federation of the Hungarian foundry industry. Apart from a few exceptions all the most prominent iron-, steel-, aluminium- and other non-ferrous metal foundries are members of the association. The majority of them are jobbing foundries i.e. they produce castings in obedience to domestic or rather foreign orders for almost all branches of industry, the public utilities and municipal servicing enterprises. In addition to the foundries also enterprises of the supplying industry such as producers of auxilliary materials, trading and consulting undertakings etc. are members of the association.
