About MRT

Our History

Since its inception over 70 years ago, MRT has specialised in the manufacture of high quality aluminium and zinc die castings.

MRT Castings Ltd was incorporated in 1947, commencing operations from a factory in Bromley, Kent. The company moved to Peckham in 1954, and to the present premises in Andover, Hampshire in 1966. We are a privately owned family business and have continually invested in the latest technology and training to ensure that we have one of the most highly skilled teams and the most advanced manufacturing facilities in the UK foundry industry.
