A Career for Life
The castings industry is growing and more than 100 million tonnes of casting are produced globally each year.
There are around 400 foundries in the UK. They are located in all parts of the country, with the main concentrations in the Midlands and South Yorkshire (Sheffield) areas. All of the UK foundries are listed in the ‘Foundry Yearbook’ and the ‘Casting Buyers Directory’. For further information on foundries in your region please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Engineering skills are in high demand and we need engineers, technicians, moulders, patternmakers, quality engineers, designers and automation specialists to help us shape how we live, how we travel, how we work and how we play.
A range of pathways for young people to embark on a career in the castings industry – foundry, moulding and coremaking, patternmaking, die casting, investment casting, tooling design and methods engineering.
