Over 110 years of
sand cast solutions
Even if the current product range at Melins Metall is hot to say the least, it has always involved metal casting. When it comes to sand casting we have more than 110 years' experience – not a bad starting point!
Melins Metall AB is a family-owned company that has worked with sand casting since the beginning of the last century. It all began with the founder, Johan August Andreasson-Melin, setting up a company in the village of Anderstorp in Småland to manufacture bells, window fittings, tin snuff boxes and other products. The company continued to operate and develop, generation after generation, throughout the 20th century. Manufacturing included everything from toys to number plates in the 1920s before switching in the 1930s to cast goods made according to order, based on a series of drawings and models and involving a variety of aluminium alloys. In recent years garden furniture was also incorporated into the range.
Even if the principal manufacturing base is varied, the company has evolved continuously in line with developments in sand-casting technology. Investment in machinery and a more specialised range of products has resulted in the foundry moving from pure artisanal handicraft to the modern, innovative company it is today. Production mainly comprises contract production of sand-cast aluminium parts although a great deal of the genuine craftsmanship from when the company was first founded still lives on. Operations nowadays are largely characterised by rapid delivery and problem-solving, making us an efficient, dependable supplier of sand-cast products.
