Maybrey Reliance; Quality Manufacturing in the UK

From the year it was established in 1927, to today’s modern era, Maybrey-Reliance Foundry has stood the test of time and continued to be at the forefront of manufacturing. Tracing the company history back to 1839 when George England founded the Hatcham Iron Works and started George England & Company, reveals a beginning rich in product innovation and ground-breaking design, with the patent and
production of revolutionary locomotives for railways across the UK, Europe and India.Vintage Bugatti engine

By the 1860s, the company had become the General Engineering & Boiler Company before
manufacturing was taken over by Reliance Foundry in 1975 at its new factory in Greenwich. Eventually purchased by and merged with the Hills Diecasting Company of Sydenham; in 2002 Maybrey Precision Castings of Lower Sydenham was also purchased and Maybrey-Reliance, now one of the best equipped and experienced foundries in the country, was formed.
 
Offering Die Casting and Sand Casting, the Kent based Foundry now has a range of services to offer new and existing clients across a broad spectrum of industries.

Innovation is an attitude

Made In Britain is a phrase that is often used to define the consumer requirement in the UK, but as time has ebbed on Made In China seems to have quietly and unconsciously replaced it.

Here at the Caro Group we are proud of our manufacturing history dating back to 1827; including the provision of an exhibit for the Great Exhibition in 1851. The Caro Group are constantly changing and adapting to the manufacturing environment which has allowed us to thrive in a time when the industry in general, is struggling.

Caroflow Limited has recently launched an enhanced version of its WaterWall and WaterDoor demountable Flood Defence barrier, which has been created with the aid of customer feedback in our design offices.  This innovative new barrier allows total flood protection for both residential and industrial properties, with small and large scale options. The barrier is currently being approved by the British Standards Institute, allowing Caroflow to move forward with expert market knowledge and provide a first class UK designed product in a market worth £6Billion. 

Caro Systems are likewise renowned for the quality of their paving slab support systems, but moving boldly forward they have launched a new adjustable system for both paving and decking, allowing them to further establish themselves in the market. 

Maybrey Precision Castings are also forging ahead with innovative manufacturing, in the Die and Sand Cast product market.  Manufacturing in the UK has been hit badly by the migration of casting to Eastern Europe. However, Maybreys have managed to stay in the top 10 medium sized foundries in the UK by investing in cutting edge environmental and reclamation plant, allowing them not only to cut costs, but also to retain work by adhering the company to ever increasing environmental legislation.

The Caro Group of Companies have the benefit of a structured support group which drives forward product design by allowing all the companies to draw on years of expertise in areas such as design, marketing, sales and finance to allow the pioneering attitude that exists in the group to flourish.

With innovation in the UK at an all time high, the group has moulded every aspect of creativity and ingenuity to get to the forefront of the manufacturing market in the UK and our forward thinking attitude will assure that we stay there.
