Stainless Steel: Utilised for its exceptional corrosion resistance and durability, stainless steel is a key material for automotive parts such as exhaust systems, fasteners, and fuel tanks. Our expertise in casting, forging, machining and fabricating stainless steel ensures the production of components that withstand the automotive environment’s challenges, maintaining their integrity over time.

Carbon Steel: The backbone of many automotive components, carbon steel is chosen for its strength and versatility. We manufacture a variety of parts, including gears, brackets, and structural elements, using carbon steel. Our ability to work with different grades allows us to match the specific strength and durability requirements of each application.

Aluminium: Recognised for its lightweight properties, aluminium is increasingly used in the automotive sector for engine components, body panels, and wheels. Our advanced precision casting and machining processes enable us to create aluminium parts that contribute to fuel efficiency and emissions reduction, without compromising on strength or performance.


Cast Iron: Employed in applications requiring excellent vibration damping and wear resistance, such as engine blocks and brake components. Our capabilities in working with cast iron allow for the manufacture of heavy-duty parts that offer reliability and longevity in demanding operational conditions.

Ductile Iron: Ductile iron is another crucial material in the automotive industry, particularly valued for its strength, toughness, and ductility over traditional cast iron. It finds applications in areas where a higher level of shock absorption is required, such as in heavy-duty vehicle axles, suspension components, and certain types of gears. Ductile iron’s ability to withstand cyclic loading and stress makes it ideal for parts that are subjected to repeated impact or stress, enhancing vehicle safety and durability. Our expertise in processing ductile iron, through advanced casting techniques and subsequent machining, allows us to deliver components that meet the automotive industry’s demanding specifications for strength, wear resistance, and longevity.

Alloy Steels: Including various grades that offer enhanced properties such as increased strength, improved wear resistance, and greater toughness. Alloy steels are used in the production of drive train components, suspension systems, and other critical parts. Our investment casting, forging and machining processes are tailored to exploit these materials’ benefits, ensuring superior performance of the finished components.
