Welcome to Our Foundry

Madd Castings was opened in 1998 by Robert, aka “Moose,” Gugelman and his wife Denise. With some backing from local artist and family member Jane Dedecker, and a banker that believed in their mission, Garth Thomas; Madd Castings began their tradition of quality castings. Moose, who has been in the foundry business since 1977, got started when working for Bob Zimmerman who is still running his foundry, Land’s End in Paonia, Colorado.

The foundry has grown substantially over the years from the original six employees to sixteen employees at one point. Robert’s son, Chris Gugelman, took over in 2017 when Robert retired. Madd Castings has done it all. In 2008, Madd Castings installed a 10 kilowatt system of solar panels which powers 96 percent of the 110 volt power that the foundry uses. These progressive ideas continue to bring the foundry to lead the bronze casting industry in the 21st century.
