PAISLEY-based Carlton Die Castings Ltd manufactures gravity and high-pressure die castings in aluminium and zinc. It was founded in 1947.
The company also has an extensive in-house CNC machine shop in order to provide customers with fully finished castings, ready for assembly. Carlton Die Castings has now achieved accreditation from Made in Britain.
Greg Wilson, sales director at Carlton Die Castings, told Made in Britain, “Ours is a family-run business, now in its third generation, and is Scotland's only gravity and high-pressure die casting manufacturer. Our markets include lighting, oil and gas, Ministry of Defence, electronics and telecoms.
“This is Scotland's last remaining foundry of its type. We have always been proud of our manufacturing history and a large part of our success has been down to our British supply base and our manufacturing experience. The Made in Britain affiliation promotes our passion for British manufacturing and will help highlight the quality of our product and expertise gained from over 70 years of British manufacturing experience. Now, more than ever, it is important to celebrate and be proud of being a British manufacturer.”
