Who We Are

Our extensive precision machine shop has invested heavily in suites of CNC machining centres and lathes. We support all foundry activities, with a vertically integrated supply chain solution for fully machined and assembled castings in the heat, wear and corrosion resistant alloys that we cast. Collaborating with the customer and foundry to deliver demanding NDT, certification and full assembly, we also manufacture FranBerLube™ bearings – a specially developed range of self-lubricating bearings and wear plates suited to harsh environments.
