As a capital goods manufacturer, innovation is a key strand of the company’s strategy. This covers both product and process development, resulting in new equipment and processes for non-ferrous alloys which are used in the latest generations of high speed rail and automotive cabling.

Additional current R&D activities are also attempting to create new markets for company’s technology and capability into new areas such as lead, zinc, aluminium and nickel alloys.

The company employs some 50 people, and operates from the Wester Gourdie Industrial Estate in Dundee.
