Coimbatore was one of the first Indian cities to enter the manufacturing of cast components. Units that specialize in Non-ferrous and Ferrous castings abound in the region and service a wide spectrum of industrial requirements.
A majority of the cast components manufactured in the city go into the domestic market. They include Grey Iron, SG Iron, Shelf – moulded Aluminium and Investment castings. Special units also cater to a thriving bronze casting industry. Most foundry units have upgraded from traditional casting methods and currently employ state - of - the - art technology.
Foundry talent requires special skill sets and over the years, the city has accrued a large talent pool of highly trained and qualified professionals. Consequently, several international companies have set up their foundry divisions in the city to meet the requirement for specialized castings.
The foundry industry continues to be one of the top revenue earners for the region in both the domestic and export markets.
Coimbatore has a host of fabrication companies that specialize in sheet metal craft. These companies are an integral part of the supply chain to major components.
The Foundry Industry of coimbatore is represented by the Institute of Indian Foundrymen
