Some of the names we’re proud to work with

CastAlum is an internationally acclaimed aluminium Die caster, located in Mid Wales. The site was a Greenfield development in the winter of 2000-2001, serving one customer only.

20 years on, the company supplies parts to the UK, Europe, Canada, and Mexico. We have grown from supplying “cast only” parts to one customer, to supplying a range of products (in both High Pressure & Squeeze Cast) in cast, cast & machined, assembled & tested as the needs of our customer base has dictated.

Ninety percent of all production is for export, with our components going into vehicles produced by VAG, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Fiat, Renault, Porsche, Mercedes, Jaguar Land Rover, AML and other prestigious marques.

Over the past 9 years the Company has invested heavily in the development of new products, processes, and capabilities. Through our own investigation and expertise, we have been able to bring several process solutions to bear in meeting world class quality standards. Key to this is our “Forward Focus” ethos which drives change as our customers’ needs grow to meet the new challenges of Electric Vehicle (EV) and Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) technology.

Our investment & understanding of Additive Material Technology to aid with conformal cooling has allowed us to change what is viewed as feasible within our industry. We now have a wealth of experience and data to support the development of lightweight casting technology without sacrificing properties or durability.

We have ten fully-automated high pressure diecasting cells in the range of 1,000 – 1,600 tonne locking-force. Each cell has its own integral bulk-melting tower furnace to ensure that the correct quantity and quality of metal is always on hand. We are also the only foundry in Europe to successfully operate a Squeeze casting resource, with three Squeeze cells ranging from 1450 to 2000 tonnes which allow a shot weight of up to 20 kilos.

In 2009, we began developing a dedicated machine shop within the existing Welshpool facility to provide a full-service to new and existing customers alike. In addition, we have a number of secondary processes including sandblasting and x-ray, enabling us to provide a complete customer service.
