There are few businesses that probably inspire thoughts of high tech innovation less than a family owned foundry and machine shop. Don't get me wrong. These are certainly vital small businesses. But they might not be the first places we think of as hot beds of high tech innovation. In the case of Bremen Castings, a 300-employee metal and ferrous castings plant in Bremen, Ind., we'd be dead wrong. In this post from Kevin Casey, we meet Darrin Sweet, IT manager for Bremen Castings and learn how technology can transform even low-tech of small businesses.

Thank you very much for the case study on Bremen Castings. I will show it to a potential client who is in the welding industry. I have long experience from the (low tech) manufacturing industry, so it is a great pleasure to read that you could find innovation in this field

Hi Kevin,

Great case study about how innovation can change any business. I've shared it with the BizSugar community because I think it's instructive to any small business owner or manager. Innovation can change (and improve) your operations no matter what kind of company you run. Thanks for posting!
