Dean Group Are Keeping Up Manufacturing for the Supply Chain

Date: April 23, 2020

There is no denying that global supply chains have been massively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it’s still critical that manufacturers can keep production going in these uncertain times, especially as this can help the global supply chain.

After all, minimising the disruptive effect that the coronavirus is having on the manufacturing sector is essential, so that the negative impact on the economy is minimised.


How Dean Group is Helping Companies and the Supply Chain

As an investment casting company, we believe it’s important to do our best now to keep up production and support the critical industries. We continue to supply components to the aerospace, defence and oil and gas sectors – and we are doing so with efficiency and a fast turnaround where we can.

We've continued to work closely with our supply partners to ensure manufacturing, and we’ve also ordered supplies for more than usual coverage and stocked up on extra batches for our customers. Since the pandemic started, we’ve been taking a daily dip check with our partners in order to be able to prepare and take action as needed.

Our UK foundry is still operational and ready to go should you require our services. Dean Group have not stopped producing key components for a range of sectors, which means we’re capable of casting the parts you need for your business.

Our aluminium investment casting (ELITE) process has been crucial in this, since it allows us to supply parts that are gas tight, have thin wall sections, offer consistent high range tensile results, have enhanced microstructure with no need for ‘hipping’, takes into account a large array of sizes and weights, provides good surface finishes, and so much more.

This technique is also great for applications where weight is a concern, as aluminium is a lightweight material widely used in aerospace, military and defence, oil and gas, and many other markets.
