Quality Castings (Slough) Limited is a privately owned company initially established in Slough in 1959, we moved to our current purpose built Foundry based in Bury St Edmunds in 1968 and established our long standing routes with the aim of becoming the best in class manufacturing establishment.
Our manufacturing facilities are based around the Gravity Die and Air set sand moulding processes which combined produce in excess of 800 tonnes of aluminium alloy castings per year. Our Quality Policy and procedures are set to the highest standards which demonstrate our commitment to exceed all our customer requirements and expectations.
Quality Castings are a modern and progressive foundry having over 50 years of experience in the production of high quality aluminium alloy castings. We are constantly working to meet the continuously increasing demands and standards of our customers who along with ourselves are all working within an increasingly competitive market. This is achieved by ensuring that our dedicated skilled work force are involved at all stages throughout the business, and by using a combination of traditional foundry practices and knowledge, along with new modern practices and technology our goals are achieved.
A high proportion of our castings are required to meet very high standards of integrity which include zero defects in flame paths for safety hazardous components used within the petro chemical, gas, oil and mining industries, we also use inspection processes such as x-Ray and Dye Penetrant detection.
