£4.5 Million Investment in our Foundry

Posted on July 11, 2012 by Thomas Dudley Ltd

Having invested over £2 million in our foundry just two years ago, we are delighted to reveal that a brand new £4.5 million moulding line will be officially unveiled by Lenny Henry on September 28th.

The new Disa 131Z moulding line demonstrates our strong commitment to UK manufacturing and has been purchased with the help of the Regional Grant Fund.

Martin Dudley, Joint Managing Director explains “our foundry currently employs almost 100 long serving and loyal people, 10 of whom have been with us for over 25 years. The improvements made in 2010 have transformed the Division, enabling us to enter new markets, compete more effectively with overseas foundries and secure significant new business. The growth that has been delivered has also allowed us to safeguard jobs and create a number of new positions”.

“Whilst many organisations have actually cut expenditure during the economic downturn, we have taken the opportunity to invest heavily in both our plant and people. The new Disa 131Z further enhances our capabilities to engineer high quality castings to extremely tight tolerances and will allow us to offer customers higher quality and an even better service”.

Further details are available by telephoning 0121 530 7002 or by emailing foundrysales@thomasdudley.co.uk.
