New contracts create jobs at MPD

A total of 11 jobs are being created at one of the Black Country’s fastest growing foundries after it announced a number of contract wins.

Midland Pressure Diecasting (MPD) is looking to recruit four casters, four manufacturing operatives and three linishers as part of expansion plans that will help it target sales of £5m by the end of the year. The extra staff will take the total workforce up to 60 and give MPD the required capacity to deliver the volumes generated by the new business wins, which include a £100,000 contract for lighting sector components.
Due to the increasing workload, the company has just completed the first phase of its new factory layout, which will boost productivity. This work has included the movement of plant and machinery to create a better flow and the installation of energy-efficient lighting. MPD also recently purchased a Doosan CNC vertical machining centre and new spark eroder to help with growing demand from clients looking to re-shore due to quality issues from overseas suppliers.
