I am pleased to advise you that on 31st October 2017 Haworth Castings was acquired by Expromet Technologies Group Ltd. Expromet is a privately-owned foundry group that also owns Investacast, a leading investment casting business based in Ilfracombe, Devon. Following the acquisition I will be continuing in my role as Managing Director, based in Romsey, and there will be no organisational changes to the business.
After 50 years of family ownership, I am confident that this acquisition will be a positive step for the future of Haworth Castings. Joining a focused foundry group such as Expromet, will enable the company to benefit from the resources, investment and management experience of a larger business. I also believe that it will be beneficial to Haworth Casting’s customers, who will be able to access a wider range of engineering solutions through Investacast’s UK manufacturing site and its supply chain partners in Asia.
I wish to emphasise that there will be no changes to the day-to-day operations of Haworth Castings and its sites in Romsey and Basingstoke, and that it will be business as normal following the acquisition.
Please get in touch should you have any questions.
Andrew Haworth, Managing Director
