Lupton & Place Limited, Europe’s leading diecasting company, is expanding its manufacturing plant at its Burnley headquarters. The expansion is part of the company’s long term growth plan and strategy to ensure it remains at the leading edge of the diecasting industry.

The expansion, which is due to be completed by May of this year, includes the construction of a 250 sq meter building and investment in plant and equipment enabling the Burnley company to increase its melting capacity as part of the production of high quality castings.

As a family run business in Burnley, employing over 120 people, the expansion is set to increase production capacity which already runs at over 2 million castings per year and ensure the company retains its leading position within the UK and Europe. Commenting on the development Steve Gill, Managing Director said ‘At Lupton & Place we have been at the forefront of the diecasting industry for many years and this expansion is part of our continuing commitment to invest in state of the art technology so that we can retain flexibility within a large customer base and continue to hold a commanding position on the global stage which is great news for Burnley and our staff’.
