Abstract The purpose of the study was to identify and typify the main qualitativeenvironmental aspects of the success of foundry enterprises facing economic changes. The research method developed was based on methodological triangulation. This procedure influenced the credibility of the collected data by including a significant number of sources and reducing the measurement error. The study used: surveying, face-to-face interviews, multiple case studies and content analysis. The survey made it possible to categorize the attributes of success (quality, sustainability, resources, flexibility, environment, management strategy customer relations). Assuming that the frequency of occurrence of an attribute indicates the level of its effectiveness, the following were considered the main determinants: training/courses, supervision and control, reliability and durability of products and compliance with standards and requirements, waste management and waste disposal, core and reserve capital, and customer service.
