£4.5 million investment at AGA's Cast Iron Foundry
AGA Rangemaster opened a new £1.8 million sand plant at the historic cast iron foundry in Ironbridge, Shropshire on Monday, part of an overall investment of £4.5 million at the foundry. The opening was attended by AGA Chief Executive William McGrath, alongside Telford Labour MP David Wright, his Conservative election rival Lucy Allan and Tory MEP Anthea McIntyre. The sand plant delivers recyclable sand to a moulding machine to produce perfect castings for cast iron cookware and AGA and Rayburn cookers.;
Mr McGrath said "Our new sand plant has the capacity to produce the highest quality moulds that will continue to produce our world famous products. Our investment in the region is paramount and we support the jobs, local industry and the skills that Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge has offered for centuries."
