As the aerospace industry developed during the early 1900's, the focus of the business moved towards magnesium and aluminium light alloy castings to supply the needs of this rapidly growing industry. In 1939, a new plant was established in Charlton, south-east London, close to the Thames Barrier, and this plant continues to produce aerospace castings today.
Stone Foundries is a leading European manufacturer of high integrity magnesium castings and aluminium castings. From our site in south-east London, we supply sand castings and precision investment castings to the aerospace, defence, motorsport and other engineering industries. Our key customers include AgustaWestland, Airbus, BAE Systems, MBDA and Rolls-Royce. Stone Foundries is a division of Langham Industries, a privately-owned group with international business interests in the marine, aerospace and engineering industries.
