Maddox Foundry & Machine Works


Maddox Foundry, Archer, FL.

Maddox Foundry was started in 1905, by Hitup Maddox and his brother who came to Florida after working in a phosphate mine for 13 years. His vision was to start a one stop-shop-doing everything under one roof. He borrowed money from Mr. Chase to start this foundry.

For five generations and 105 years, the Maddox Family has maintained ownership of a private free enterprise company that provides jobs, supports government and their community-Maddox Foundry & Machine Works.
