– Enjoying Retirement –

Several have asked about Adolf & Leonor – We think the picture they recently sent speaks for itself.  They are doing well and enjoying retirement!  Thanks for asking.

“Home of the Perfect Match” has recently taken on a new meaning!

Adolf’s Pattern Shop was founded in 1969 by Adolf and Leonor Volkmann of Portland, OR. Adolf, a journeyman patternmaker, and Leonor an accountant, successfully developed and marketed products with the assistance of their family well in to their 80s when they began to search for a buyer to take over the global enterprise. Not finding a buyer by mid-2019, they notified their customers and started to liquidate their inventory. Being a long-term customer of Adolf’s and working with the foundry industry for over 30 years, Midwest Pattern, Inc. knew the impact of not having Adolf’s™ unique, superior products available for pattern makers and the metal-casting industry. After meeting and learning of each other’s backgrounds and dedication to the trade, an agreement was made with Midwest Pattern to purchase Adolf’s Pattern Shop, Inc. in its entirety and move it to SE Minnesota effective April 2, 2020.

The expanded business will complement each service sector with Midwest Pattern maintaining its service to the foundry industry and Adolf’s Pattern Shop continuing to provide patternmaking and metal-casting products via www.foundrysupply.com.

Jason Speltz, CEO and founder of Midwest Pattern, Inc. said, “Midwest Pattern’s operations and ties to Adolf’s™ products provides a growth opportunity, will sustain product availability for the patternmaking and metal-casting industries, and will complement each other during slow economic times. We are honored to carry on and expand their legacy.”
