Invest Cast Inc. & Conley Precision Engine Partner to Develop Casting Process & Production for the Stinger 609
“Perfect is almost good enough.” That’s the motto of Conley Precision Engines, and that level of dedication to performance and quality is why Invest Cast Inc. is such a good fit for Gary Conley. Most people in the machining industry know the story of Conley engines, from the original V-8 machined completely from billet material to the Stinger 609 that earned Conley the Metalworking Craftsman of the Year award.
Getting the Stinger 609 completed successfully took more than just dedication from Conley. He also needed vendors and partners who shared his passion for the work. The original casting foundry that Conley worked with on the Stinger 609 was destroyed by fire in 2001, leaving all Conley’s molds for the Stinger 609 up in flames and uninsured. Still determined to continue, Conley needed a casting developer just as dedicated to the craft as he was.
That’s when he met William Walker, Sr., President and CEO of Invest Cast Inc. The two immediately hit it off and quickly developed a casting process that would help Conley reach his goals. Invest Cast Inc. created parts that were straighter, higher quality and with better finish and better tolerance, all at a lower cost. Eighty-three percent of the components on the Stinger 609 are parts cast by Invest Cast, which has led to an ongoing partnership with Conley Precision Engines. Invest Cast is proud to be one of the vendors Conley credits with helping him achieve his success. Thank you Gary, and congratulations!
