The MARCOZA Castings Division of Midland Mfg. produces some of the finest quality plaques, memorials and restoration articles available anywhere. Our staff has over 40 years of hands-on experience not only in the design and creation of cast plaques but also in helping and advising architects, builders, businesses and government agencies how to effectively utilize castings to optimize their impact and help achieve the desired goals. From simple way-finding signs to elaborate historical restorations, we offer our expertise to generate solutions staying within budget guidelines.
