ABOUT US

WE KNOW IT'S NOT ABOUT US IT'S ABOUT LOOKING AFTER YOU,

OUR CLIENTS BUT WE THOUGHT YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW A LITTLE

BIT ABOUT US.

STYRECAST REPRESENTS FIVE GENERATIONS OF THE TAYLOR FAMILY, ALL FOUNDRY MEN STARTING WITH JOHN TROT TAYLOR AS A PATTERN MAKER IN AN IRON FOUNDRY IN BURLEY, LANCASHIRE IN ENGLAND IN 1848, THROUGH TO OUR CURRENT CEO, W. MARK TAYLOR.

IT TOOK A FURTHER 1OO YEARS FROM JOHN TROT TAYLOR'S BEGINNINGS BEFORE WE HAD OUR OWN FOUNDRY STARTED BY DAN TAYLOR IN 1955, CALLED 'TAYLOR CASTINGS' BUT THE COMPANY NAME LATER CHANGED TO 'AUTO ALLOYS' TO REFLECT THE MANUFACTURE OF ALUMINIUM CASTINGS FOR FLEDGLING BRITISH CAR-MAKERS, SUCH AS LOTUS CARS.

IN THE 1960's WE STARTED PRODUCING FERROUS METAL CASTING SPECIALIZING IN HEAT AND WEAR-RESISTANT COMPONENTS. OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE HAD A VARIETY OF OFF-SHOOT ENTERPRISES INCLUDING RE-BUILDING WW2 SPITFIRES, BEING THE EUROPEAN AGENT FOR HUGHES HELICOPTERS, HOTCAN SELF-HEATING FOOD FOR THE MILITARY AND PRODUCING OUR OWN RANGE OF LOST-FOAM FOUNDRY EQUIPMENT.

WE MADE OUR FIRST CROSS COUPLING PROTECTOR IN 1987 WHICH ARE NOW SOLD UNDER THE 'STYRECAST' BRAND AND WE ARE NOW THE FOREMOST MANUFACTURE OF CABLE PROTECTION SYSTEMS IN THE OIL INDUSTRY.
