Selmet was established in 1983 by Larry Sharpf. After retiring from a successful career in the Aerospace industry, specifically titanium investment castings, Mr. Sharpf was consulting for the previous owner of the facility where Selmet resides today. Mr. Sharpf is a great American entrepreneur who desired to own his own company and felt that the unique process he had found could provide value to an industry dominated by just a small group of other companies. His core belief that you will be successful by providing your customer with a quality part on time remains deeply integrated in the culture at Selmet today.
Over the next 30 years Selmet has evolved into a world class investment casting foundry with a customer base that spans the globe. Mr. Sharpf sold Selmet to BluePoint Capital partners in the fall of 2011. As part of the sale agreement Mr. Sharpf and many on Selmet’s management team retained a significant share of the stock in the company. BluePoint is committed to keeping the Selmet culture in place as we move forward with aggressive growth plans being demanded by our customers and the industry as a whole.
