Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Iron Casting industry has a low level of capital intensity. The average operator in the industry spends £12.26 on wages for every £1.00 they spend on capital. Manufacturers in this industry invest in equipment to produce particular components and to help reduce the number of hours it takes to produce a tonne of castings, consequently improving profit margins. Specialist pieces of equipment include foundry furnaces, moulding lines, CNC milling machines and testing equipment for high-integrity castings. There is relatively low use of volume production line methods, which limits capital intensity.
