Multi-award-winning Foundry scoops another accolade for ‘Best Use of Technology’ at the Express & Star Business Awards 2018

Posted on June 19, 2018 by Thomas Dudley Ltd

Multi-award winner, Thomas Dudley Foundry has successfully won the ‘Best Use of Technology’ Award at the Express & Star Business Awards 2018.

The combination of advanced engineering technology, a uniquely skilled team and true ‘can-do’ attitude helped win this award as the Foundry offered a level of flexibility that is simply unsurpassed.

A UK based company approached Thomas Dudley to help produce castings within an exceptionally tight deadline. When the customer provided a simple sketch, Thomas Dudley’s engineers produced a CAD/CAM design and 3D printed prototype within hours. Patterns were then produced on day two and finished castings manufactured on day three to help make the seemingly impossible, possible. To add, the Foundry’s customer driven culture meant that these resources were made available immediately.

Mick Cramphorn, Foundry Director at Thomas Dudley Foundry explains: “We’re extremely proud and honoured to receive this prestigious award. To be recognised for Best Use of Technology once again highlights and defines our Foundry capabilities. To turn around a new casting project within days and provide customers with the reassurance of knowing that we can deliver castings in any grade of iron, in any required volumes and at times to suit their manufacturing requirements, within 24 hours from stock is an achievement to be proudly recognised for within the industry. I’d like to thank all those involved in the project. Results such as this support the Company’s commitment to working with customers as a value-adding, strategic engineering partner.”

The Express & Star Business Awards took place in early June at Wolverhampton Racecourse, which is an associate sponsor of the event. Altodigital sponsored the ‘Best Use of Technology’ category.

The Thomas Dudley Group, which has recently celebrated winning the Black Country Chambers ‘Best Use of Technology’, ‘Business of the Year’ and ‘Innovation’ awards last year, has delivered exceptional growth in recent years and as a world class manufacturer, is continuing to invest in infrastructure, technology and people.
