Leading British manufacturer of high-precision alloy engineering components Doncasters has invested GBP 7.2 million to extend Doncasters Precision Castings Deritend in Droitwich Spa in UK. The extension will deliver great benefits to the business, including improved parts flow and safety, reduced environmental impact and lead times, and an increased capacity overall that allows the business to invest in advanced technology and local talent in the future. The extended Doncasters Precision Casting site will be officially opened on 6 October 2022.Until now, Doncasters operated two sites in Droitwich, two miles apart, with different processes taking place at each. This meant that materials and products had to be moved back and forth during the engineering process. Now, the two teams will reunite, improving operation and energy efficiencies and working lives for staff. Over 340 staff will work in the new state-of-the-art facility, with future employment opportunities available for people in the Worcestershire region and beyond. The extension has also allowed Doncasters to make several upgrades to its existing processes, particularly its ceramics core manufacturing. Ceramics now has its own dedicated building so this product area can continue to grow without impacting other operations. The site is also committed to reducing the energy baseload by 10% whilst growing renewable consumption by 10%. Doncasters is a leading international manufacturer of high-precision, engineering components, designed to operate in the most demanding of conditions. Through advanced manufacturing facilities across Europe and the US, it serve the world’s leading OEMs in the aerospace, industrial gas turbine and specialist automotive markets.
