Maycast-Nokes is a privately owned company dedicated to the manufacture of high quality precision castings. From a single site location Maycast-Nokes manufacture fully machined lost wax investment castings and precision sand castings in a variety of materials.
The Company has evolved since 1971 when it was known as Evans Foundry.
In 1979 it changed its name to Nokes Foundry and in 1982 Colin Richer, the current Chairman, took over.
Throughout the 1980’s the company was transformed, additional buildings and machinery were purchased and the customer base was broadened.
In 1993 the directors of Nokes Foundry acquired Maycast Precision Products of Hitchin which, had been established in 1967, and was at the forefront of the UK investment casting industry.
During 1998 all Maycast manufacture was moved from Hitchin to a new purpose built investment casting foundry adjacent to the sand foundry in Halstead.
Maycast-Nokes now employs 120 people and is one of the most comprehensive single site suppliers of non-ferrous castings in the UK.
We recognise that at the early stages of design a flexible approach is advantageous, as such we are able to work from sketches, 2D drawings or 3D models. We can supply castings made by rapid prototyping for fit, form and function trials or pre production runs.
