At Reliance Foundry, our mission is to help make places people want to be.
We craft products to create a welcoming, safe, beautiful spaces using our 95 years of metallurgical expertise. Once, we were a foundry that made custom castings for local clients. With an early online presence—one of the first foundries to become digital—we found a niche in providing the highest-quality architectural stock furnishings for the North American market. Our signature lines feature decorative, flexible, and crash-rated bollards used to define pedestrian spaces, separate bike lanes, and protect people and property. To complement our bollards, we offer a site furnishings line, featuring unique laser-cut benches and screens that add decorative flair to needed amenities.
Always evolving and comfortable in the digital space, Reliance is now equipping site furnishings with sensors that provide information for site maintenance and alert for extreme events. For example, onsite sensors monitor water levels in sewers, rivers, and bioswales and alert against overflow. Maintenance crews can be dispatched before great damage is done. Waste management routes are easier to optimize with in-bin sensors that show levels across the city. With cloud-based data processing, big sites and municipalities can monitor their infrastructure at a distance, providing cost efficiencies and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
