Queen's Award for Enterprise

Global Casting Excellence

Grainger & Worrall provides prototype, race and small series casting solutions in aluminium, iron and stainless steel to a global market.

At the Professional MotorSport World Expo in Cologne the company will be showcasing a wide range of competences, validation and associated engineering services including the Cosworth CA Series F1 Engine, a gravity poured precision sand cast aluminium transmission casing, V10 lightweight high performance cylinder block and a Hybrid Sand Ceramic Test Sample.

Based in the UK, Grainger & Worrall has established a reputation as an international market leader and has been responsible for developing some of the most complex castings for a very demanding customer base incorporating the pinnacle of motorsport, Formula 1.

2012 saw Grainger & Worrall earn a second Queen’s Award for Industry, this time for innovation, as well as recently receiving the prestigious R&D 100 Award presented by US-based R&D Magazine for co-developing the ground-breaking Hybrid Ceramic-Sand Core Casting Technology (patent pending). “These are exciting times for our company and PMW always provides good opportunities to meet our customers and speak face-to-face about our current product developments,” said Grainger & Worrall managing director James Grainger.

“This year we have much to talk about, including delivery in the coming weeks of the latest in digital sand printing manufactured by ExOne, the printer uses the HHS system (High Heat Strength), a phenol based binder with a silica/synthetic blended sand, providing high strength and low expansion sand cores for rapid manufacture. We are also particularly pleased to introduce Ingo Koenigshoven, our newly appointed business development manager for DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). Ingo brings a wealth of automotive engine knowledge and being based in central Germany is ideally located”.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand in Cologne – and to introducing Ingo to new and existing customers.”
