Now, the company is continuing its success and ventured into a new type of manufacturing with the debut of its new entity, BCI Defense, LLC.
Falling under the Bremen Castings umbrella, BCI Defense will focus on the firearms industry and manufacture a product that is unique to the Indiana-based company. The BCI Defense new project, the mil-spec SQS15, will reflect the same quality and workmanship Bremen Castings’ products have always boasted. The manufactured products will include the upper receiver, lower receiver and buffer tubes, all made from 7075-T6 aluminum, as well as assembly of the components.
BCI Defense will continue to place safety at the forefront of plant operations as well as reflect the very values and culture the company was built upon. Bremen Castings continues to manufacture machined complete gray and ductile iron components as well as producing products for OEMs.
