Company Information
Since 1959 this company has been noted for quality castings in copper-based and aluminium alloys. In 1986, as a result of investing in electric melting facilities, our product range was extended to include iron alloys.
Over the years we have maintained our reputation for reliability by retaining traditional foundry skills used to produce a wide variety of castings ranging from 0.1kg to 1 tonne in weight, for customers in marine, civil and general engineering; pump and valve manufacturing; shipbuilding and mining; tooling lighting and architectural applications.
Variety and flexibility are our specialties. Whether one-off or batch production our service is second to none and pattern-making and machining facilities are available in-house to provide the complete foundry package, all of which is accredited to ISO 9001.
Our foundry combines a rare blend of craft skills with modern technology to supply quality castings for pump and valve manufactures.
The foundry can cast up to 1000kgs in copper-based alloys, 500 kgs in aluminium alloys and 1000kgs in iron alloys.
Moulding techniques incorporate greensand, air-set and CO2 process as required to meet the quality standards expected by our customers
