“Our company has been involved with the Ductile Iron Society for many years. I have personally been active for 18 years  From research, projects, committees and now as President, DIS has been invaluable in every aspect of Ductile Iron.  Technical advances, customer relations and marketing, educational resources and student involvement, and the ability to network with the premier leaders and technical experts of our industry are more than worth the time and investment.

“We were introduced to the DIS from a friendly competitor. He was right on the money when he told us that the modest dues would more than pay for themselves with the technical sessions, foundry visitations and good social interaction.  Our meetings are useful, working, technical meetings; not golf and tennis extravaganzas.”

“DIS is all about no-nonsense research, learning, sharing and networking. Of the many organizations that my company  and I belong to, this is by far the most productive.”

“DIS has been great support for our development as a certified ductile iron casting producer. Our participation during the years in meetings and visits made a big contribution to our growth as a quality foundry. The technical support and openness among the members of DIS to discuss quality issues, opportunities for improvement and industry challenges is definitively one of our competitive advantages as a foundry. The high technical level of the conferences, the amount  of knowledge and the years of experience together and the quality of the discussions you can witness during our  meetings is really an asset for each and every member of DIS.”
