“I have had the pleasure of working with Liberty Pattern over the course of the past 25 years or so. I think of them not only as a supplier of premium quality patterns and fixtures but also as my friends. The work that they do is with no doubt in my mind the best in the business. From customer service to custom machining they always meet or exceed expectations. Great work guys.”

“Custom-Pak has done business with Liberty Pattern for probably 25 years now. Helping us build blow molds. Gary August and his team have always done a super job with anything we have given them. We rely on Liberty Pattern and the skills they have for 5-axis work when we just don’t have the time in our machines. They have also done a fair amount of 3 axis CNC work for us through the years. We ask how long it will take them to complete the task we request and they will get it done within that time frame. Gary August and Steve Slininger are very professional yet personable. I would recommend Liberty Pattern for any type of pattern work or machining knowing that it will get done on time.”
“It must have been 1992 when Bill August called at our Foundry in Larbert, Scotland. We were one year in to our experiences with a brand new Hunter 10 machine and struggling desperately to find a quality pattern making outfit who understood the casting business and could price work competitively. That competency was to be found at Bill’s Liberty Pattern Company. 22 years on and a generation down the line at both companies, we still order 100% of our pattern requirement from Liberty Pattern.
Gary, Mike, Leo, Linda, Steve, Carl and all the others – what a team! And it does not stop there – many new faces are appearing and the skills and enthusiasm are perpetuated in another generation of youngsters, both family and general employees.
Best regards Gary and congratulations to you and your team. You have a remarkable company with a great ethos and record of excellence. Keep up the good work!”
“I have worked with Liberty Pattern for over 30 years while employed at 3 aerospace foundries. As with all suppliers, we compare the value of product & services received to the cost. Liberty Pattern ranks at the top of the list. Most of the tooling purchased involves complex tooling for aluminum and magnesium aerospace castings, gaging for core assemblies and pre-machining fixtures. In addition, Liberty models and constructs the gating and provides iron castings (chills) used in the assemblies. As part of their initial quotation we receive a preliminary tool assembly design with helps us convince our customers that were the best supplier for them. We spend a lot of time with their engineers on tool design and find that they have anticipated potential problems and offer realistic solutions.
Developing new aerospace castings can be a long and involved process. A large part is meeting schedules. Liberty Pattern has the technical capability, staff and commitment to meet promised deliveries. We have experienced this time and time again. Liberty Pattern meets their commitments and our expectations.”
“Throughout my thirty-five year career in the casting field, I have yet to find a more capable pattern shop to support the foundry efforts. Liberty Pattern has always been state of the art, not only in the shop equipment they have available on the floor, but in their approach to actual pattern engineering and construction as well.”

“Liberty Pattern is a very valuable tooling supplier to Fansteel Wellman Dynamics. Their response to help us has met or exceeded our customers’ expectations and requirements. This has benefited us greatly in the industry.”
“It has been my absolute pleasure to work with Liberty Pattern for well over 20 years in building new patterns, dies, fixtures and even on occasion short run machine samples. When thinking of Liberty a number of words come to mind like Integrity, Loyalty, Superior Quality and Accuracy. Liberty is also one that does not sit back and let the world come to them, they continually are active in looking at ways to improve products and speed to market utilizing new technology and supporting their customer goals no matter what the obstacle. I would HIGHLY recommend Liberty Pattern to anyone looking for a high performance pattern shop as I look forward to many more years of working with them as well.”
