Foundry investment prompts record-breaking year

Around £250,000 of investment looks set to deliver a record-breaking year for a Black Country foundry.

Midland Pressure Diecasting (MPD), which employs 65 people across two sites in Willenhall, has purchased a CNC vertical machining centre and a spark eroder to help with growing demand from clients looking to re-shore due to quality issues from overseas suppliers. The company says that over £1m of orders are in the pipeline, and the recent investment will ensure MPD has the capacity to complete in excess of £5m in sales by January 2020; its best-ever year since formation in 2000.
