started by Bob Blanc in 1974.
Bob was previously Vice-President of the Rapco Toy
Company in Chicago, Illinois.
Rapco owned the Rapaport Bros. toy line (also known by
Cast Rite and Home Foundry trade names), which produced
casting sets and molds for almost 40 years. Upon
leaving Rapco, Bob bought the tooling and inventory of
Rapco's 43 metal molds.
Bob operated the newly formed Castings Company in
Highland Park, Illinois for 5 years. He then moved it
to Longwood, Florida in 1980. Castings remained in
Florida until 1994 when the company moved to Eastsound,
Washington on Orcas Island.
During the past 25 years Castings has introduced over
450 new molds (mostly made of silicone rubber because of
the improved obtainable figure quality and ease of
pouring), in over 30 different mold series. Bob is
still active in the business and can be reached at
