A Brief History.

The Foundry started in1940, producing zinc castings. In 1948, the Brockhouse Group acquired the business, which enabled considerable expansion into aluminium casting, and machining.

In 1979 the foundry was re-equipped with Italpresse die-casting machines and in 1980 was further augmented with the addition of the gravity die-casting facility.

Then, during the 1990s the existing 200 tonne and 400 tonne machines were replaced and the foundry area was doubled with the addition of an automated gravity die-casting line and three 750 tonne die-casting cells. Also, in 1999, the new machine shop was commissioned by the then new owners JL French Automotive Castings Inc.

In 2006, when the Parent Company experienced trading difficulties, the Presteigne division was sold and subsequently reverted to the original company name of Kaye Presteigne.

The company has always been at the forefront of innovative advances in manufacturing techniques, building a strong reputation for technological developments within the die-casting industry.

Now, with its expertise in high pressure and gravity die-casting, precision machining and assembly, the company is focussed on developing long term relationships with its customers in all sectors of industry. Kaye Presteigne continues to ensure its commitment to total customer satisfaction.
