VeeLite/Alu-Casting has extended its manufacturing capability by its purchase of the business of ‘Waterford Castings Ltd’ in 2011, a long established die-casting Aluminium Casting business.  This Company has been a supplier to VeeLite for almost 30 years as the Die castings used in many of VeeLite’s lighting Products have been tooled and supplied by Waterford Castings Ltd.  The business is now trading as Alu-casting and it supplies the aluminium die Castings to a wide range of OEM customers mainly in Britain and Ireland.

The business was relocated to our Kilbarry plant, together with the Staff and management. The Technical Director Mr Laurence Douglas has over 30 years experience in the aluminum casting business and is an experienced Toolmaker.  Several other staff have joined the business in sales, admin and production roles.
