The Mayor of the West Midlands praised Alucast’s commitment to investing in new technology and its people during a recent visit. Andy Street (pictured right) received a socially distanced tour of the aluminium casting specialist’s facility in Wednesbury to understand how the company is bouncing back from COVID-19 by targeting new opportunities in lightweighting – a major growth market with castings at its heart. The Mayor talked with staff to understand how it is supporting major OEMs in the automotive sector, as well as supplying parts to the hydraulics and chemical industries.
There was also time to find out more about the £2.2m investment in a new CNC machining shop that features six five-axis CNC machine tools. This advanced equipment will give Alucast the speed and precision necessary to meet the just-in-time delivery requirements of existing and future orders.
