CMF Launches Website to Promote UK Castings
A new website – www.ukcastings.org – promoting the importance of the UK castings industry and highlighting the sector as a modern, clean and vibrant, has been launched by the Cast Metals Federation.
“We are all aware of the perception amongst the general public of a foundry being dirty and unpleasant, and of the sector being in the doldrums, so we have launched ukcastings.org to start to rectify those beliefs and promote a much truer position of our industry,” said Tom Westley, CMF Chairman. “We want to show, in very simple terms, that everywhere you turn you’ll be using a cast component made in the UK, and that this is an industry that continues to look forward and provide good and interesting career prospects.
The initial version of the website is now up and running and will constantly evolve over time with the latest facts and figures about the industry and new developments amongst UK foundries.
The website is the start of an ongoing programme by the CMF to provide simple, clear and accurate information to both opinion formers and the general public and to open up much stronger channels between the cast metals industry and the education, careers and college sectors.
Brian Thorneycroft MD of Internet Consulting Ltd said today " We are proud to be associated with this innovative marketing initiative designed to enhance the reputation of the UK Castings Industry
