Welcome to Ballantine Castings Iron Foundry

Ballantine Castings Ltd. is a UK based Iron Foundry producing high quality, high integrity grey iron, ductile iron, aluminium and wear resistant castings to the architectural, engineering and construction sectors. Having been operational since the 1820’s, Ballantine Castings are one of the very few remaining operational iron foundries in the UK that can rightly claim to have helped shape the world we live in today

Our iron foundry specialises in the production of castings from 1kg-3 tonnes and our commitment to continual improvement and quality gives all our customers the highest standard of service without concession. We take pride in fusing modern engineering techniques with traditional iron foundry skills to deliver high quality castings to all of our clients in the UK and beyond.

We welcome any enquiries across all industry sectors so please get in touch for a no fee, no obligation quote. For all architectural castings enquiries our new Architectural Iron and Street Furniture Catalogue can be accessed on the top menu.
