Award-winning foundry divisions merge under new company

Thomas Dudley Ltd has merged both of its West Midlands (UK) foundries into one seamlessly integrated new business.

Named Thomas Dudley Foundry Ltd, the new business encompasses the company’s existing facilities in and around Dudley. The move supports the company’s commitment to providing customers with world-class engineering solutions and a manufacturing platform that is unique in the UK.

Mick Cramphorn, foundry director said: “We celebrate two new milestones today as we formally join the Duport foundry and Thomas Dudley castings foundry together. The integration can provide a complete solution to produce the most complex cast iron components up to 120kg in weight. We now have unrivalled expertise in design and development, combining a team of engineering specialists who hold a vast amount of experience across a broad range of industry sectors.”

Following the merger, all processes are now aligned to streamline casting processing and further enhance quality, offering a reliable and extremely cost-effective source of supply, for any given requirement.

Thomas Dudley also recently won the Black Country Chamber of Commerce’s Best Use of Technology Award for a combination of advanced engineering technology, a uniquely skilled team and true ‘can-do’ attitude.

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.
