Foundry Facilities

Over the years we have realised that no one system or method suits the full range of castings we produce. We like to think we’ve retained the pick of some older methods while embracing the very best of the new technologies. Consequently, when we take on new work we are not limited by a fixed production route. Flexibility and fault tolerance are the cornerstones of our plant design ensuring a consistent quality end product.
