As one of the first companies in the investment casting business to explore the opportunities offered through outsourcing, Investacast was a pioneer in its field. We have been building trusted partnerships with global manufacturers since the 1980s.
In the globalised marketplace, the search for low cost alternatives for high volume runs leads many companies to consider outsourcing. However, as many manufacturing companies have discovered to their own cost, finding the right partner is a difficult business.
Investacast has done the hard work so you don’t have to. We have spent the last 25 years developing a network of foundries in Asia that fulfill the exacting standards our customers expect when it comes to quality.
Our outsourcing service is an effective extension of our UK manufacturing base. Our outsourcing service removes risk and stress when it comes to importing product components while passing on the best cost savings to our customers. Our outsourcing service provides:
A fully managed service from our UK facility
UK pre-production prior to outsource, if needed
Investacast technicians based in Shanghai office to oversee processes
Rigorous quality control system
Ongoing support from design to delivery
UK stock holding facilities for imported orders
All our outsource partners are ISO accredited. The components they produce come with necessary quality control documents and also undergo rigorous QA checks at our UK facility before delivery.
