Fort Worth Botanic Garden
MARCOZA Castings, a Midland Mfg. Division has been honored by a long association with the beautiful, world-class Fort Worth Botanic Garden, Garden Club, Altrusa Pavilion, Rose Garden and Japanese Garden complex on North University; adjacent to the world-recognized BRIT (Botanical Research Institute of Texas) Conservancy complex (and LEEDS Award-Winning Sustainable Main Building).
Many of MARCOZA Castings’ bronze Dedication, Recognition, Donor, Directional, Gateway, Architectural and Memorial Plaques and bronze letters can be seen throughout this venue. But the Administration was keeping a little skeleton in their closet: they had a bronze dedication plaque—manufactured by another supplier in the 1960’s—literally hidden in a closet and never deployed because of some obvious typos and name misspellings that the original manufacturer had refused to mitigate.
MARCOZA Castings was called upon to take that article back to our factory and let our skilled metal craftsmen ‘re-work’ & re-finish the original until it was presentable at a subsequent (though delayed for nearly 50 years) ‘entry-way’ dedication & recognition ceremony. Administrator Steve Huddleston—after viewing the re-work—remarked, “I can’t even see where the repairs were made. I am MORE than pleased!” As evidenced by the photo of the ceremonial gathering and Public Notice, all involved were highly pleased as well.
