The Castings Industry Is Growing
In the UK there are around 400 foundries. They are located in all parts of the country, with the main concentrations in the Midlands and South Yorkshire (Sheffield) area.
UK foundries produce precision engineered components worth around £2.2B annually, using all metals and alloys and a wide range of casting processes.
We have die casting companies, investment foundries and sand foundries, all producing parts for the advanced manufacturing sector, as well as a supply chain with companies who produce tooling, dies, patterns and simulation software for designing castings, as well as all the raw materials we use in the casting industry, plus the equipment to produce castings including furnaces, moulding equipment and for additive manufacturing.
