Announced on Thursday 21 April 2022, Investment Casting Systems Limited has been recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its excellence in International Trade and is one of only 225 organisations nationally to be recognised.

Investment Casting Systems Ltd – a “World Class Toolmaker”, has been granted this award due to its continued growth in turnover and exports over the last 3 years. The company has been in business for over 40 years and manufactures precision tooling and mouldings for the global aerospace and industrial sectors, with customers in the UK, Europe, the Americas, Middle East and Asia.

Investment Casting Systems is one of three standalone businesses under the CSS Group supplying customers internationally, the others being Casting Support Systems Ltd and Technical Composite Systems Ltd.

Group Chairman and Founder Ted Head says ‘We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious accolade. After 42 years in the industry this reflects just how much the business has grown and expanded internationally. The award has been received just as we move into our brand-new 6,000 sqm  state of the art factory, which will allow future growth and development of the business and employment opportunities within the Bay. We thank all employees and associates past and present for their contribution and support.’

Now in its 56th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
