Blackwood Engineering has been supplying cast products from China for over 15 years.
All our products are manufactured in China by selected partnership foundries. We have been working with these foundries for over 15 years and have developed an excellent relationship with them, which helps us to avoid many of the pitfalls that others experience.
The company was quick to recognise the emergence of China as the most competitive location to source casting products and began importing from China in 1997.
During 2002, we decided to close down our in-house foundry and transfer all production to China. Having manufactured in the UK for over half a century, it was a difficult decision to cease production at our South Wales foundry,
It was an important step, which allowed us to focus on developing strong trading relationships with our Chinese partnership foundries and as a result, offer our customers a more competitively priced product and wider product range.
We have weekly shipments from our partner foundries to UK and European ports
