The Foundry plays a vital role in improving your metal output by increasing the yield of mines in its host city. Not only can the Foundry be enhanced further to improve this aspect, but it also hosts supply research which increases the logistical support available to your troops in the field.

As it is somewhat costly and also quite difficult to unlock, you should build one as soon as possible, preferably in whichever city you control which has the most capacity for Metal production, ie one city with enough room for 10 miners as opposed to a city with 3 mines but a combined capacity of only 5.

Burgundy can construct Foundries without requiring any Technological upgrades, making it highly efficient in the accumulation of resources from the early game.
