Commercial Forged Products, is located in Bedford Park, IL, and has been a valued member of the Forging Industry Association (FIA) for over 70 years. Commercial Forged Products brings to the market 145 years of experience as a contract manufacturer of steel forgings. Over the years, they have increased their technical and manufacturing capabilities to service products in support of many industries, including off-highway, agriculture, oil/energy, construction, and horizontal directional drilling.

Commercial Forged Products has generously donated $255,000 over the past 14 years and is a Platinum Anvil Supporter, pledging to support the foundation with a $25,000 gift each year for three or more years.

The Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation (FIERF) connects the educational community and the industry to develop the future workforce, promote forged products and research, and facilitate technology transfer. The Anvil Society is a way to recognize very important partners of the Foundation. Organizations, Foundations and individuals who pledge support of $2,500 of more per year for a minimum of three years will be designated as Anvil Society members.
