Page Hunton Foundry Ltd place in receivership.
East Coast Casting Co Ltd acquires the premises and business from the receiver, moving from Shipdham to Carbrooke. The former manager of Page Hunton, Mike Wynne, joined the board of ECC at this time, and the production staff were also retained.
This takeover gave ECC, for the first time, the ability to offer both ferrous and non-ferrous castings, including pattern-making facilities, and this has proved to be a vital selling point in the modern business environment.
1985 - 1999
Trading continued strongly throughout the nineties and the company enjoyed steady growth, including considerable expansion and modernisation of the Carbrooke site, including the introduction of facilities for casting SG Iron, Steel & Stainless Steel castings, which had not been previously produced at Carbrooke
2000 - 2006
2006 - present
In the 21st century however, the foundry industry is shrinking again, along with its customer base, and ECC Ltd is managing, as in the past, to ride out the storm and adapt to changing markets. We now look forward to a period of stability and hopefully many more years of production on this site, offering a wide choice of high level service to our customers, both old and new.
