About us


W H Butler & Sons ( Founders ) Ltd are non-ferrous founders, operating out of a purpose built foundry in Chesterfield, N E Derbyshire.

Of small to medium size with a workforce of 30, the foundry produces aluminium and copper based castings, delivered on time and at a truly competitive price.

W H Butler & Sons ( Founders ) Ltd began producing castings in 1922 and has a long and well-established history of success. For 75 years the company operated from its original factory buildings in Dronfield town centre. In 1996 the company re located to its present purpose built site in Whittington, Chesterfield. The foundry is now the largest of its kind in the local area producing castings using modern day methods whilst still drawing on knowledge and experience developed over four generations, spanning 80 years.

Specializing in both sand and gravity die castings we can cater for batch numbers ranging from one offs, up to quantities exceeding tens of thousands, in any grade of aluminium or copper based metal. By utilising skilled moulders and die casters, we can maintain a high degree of flexibility to cater for every feasible shape, size and quantity of casting required. Our casting service is second to none, whatever your requirement, we are flexible enough to meet your demands.

Our production processes offer a high degree of flexibility to our casting approach. If your demands were for small runs of relatively small castings we would recommend using the green sand process. Larger size and quantity would be more suited to the air set sand process. Very large quantities would require gravity die-casting. We can evaluate your demands and precisely identify the process best suited to your individual needs.

From the product conception, through casting development, and to final delivery, we will provide a total package unique in today's market place drawing on knowledge and methodology developed over an 80-year history.We offer a wealth of casting experience and will provide help and advice in all aspects of casting production from pattern and tool making to finished article, our ultimate aim being to supply a quality casting, delivered on time and at a truly competitive price.
