Enjoy this throwback to celebrate 30 years of Castech in Wingfield.
The Hon Lynn Arnold MP celebrated the foundry opening at the new Wingfield location on October 13th 1989.
The company began life as Cu-Base in 1947 in the Adelaide suburb of Woodville, operating in what was lovingly referred to as “the old red shed”.
It took little time for the foundry to establish a reputation as a supplier of quality castings at a competitive price, a prestige that still persists to this day.
One of the three founders, Don Stoddart, retired from the business in 1982 leaving his son Phil to oversee the move from Woodville’s Cu-Base to Wingfield’s Castech, doubling in size, doubling the workforce and doubling their capabilities.
In 2017 Castech embraced the latest technological advancements with the introduction of 3D printing capabilities through Castech 3D.
Phil’s children, Michelle and David, have since joined the foundry offering expertise in 3D technology and digital marketing, further advancing Castech into industry 4.0.
In 2019, Castech remains one of the few South Australian based foundries with an ongoing commitment to producing quality castings, guaranteed customer satisfaction and embracing cutting-edge technology.
