The team at Haworth Castings is looking forward to exhibiting alongside colleagues from Expromet Technologies Group at the forthcoming DSEI conference, which will take place from 14 – 17 September at the Excel Conference Centre in London.

Precision casting, machining and fabrication solutions for performance critical applications

With over 50 years’ experience in the defence sector, our group of companies has significant experience in finding solutions to complex casting, machining and fabrication challenges for components and systems deployed on land, in the air or at sea, and will use the exhibition to build industry networks and showcase the range of manufacturing solutions available throughout the group.

Defence expertise

Expromet has a proud history of delivering world class products for the defence sector, where quality and consistency of production are of paramount importance. The group companies design, develop and manufacture products for a range of global military and defence applications, most recently collaborating with MSubs Ltd from Plymouth, UK in the development of systems to assist in the launch and recovery of their manned midget submarine.



The Dry Combat Submersible (DCS) is 12 metres long with a beam and height of 2.4 metres. It weighs 14 tonnes fully loaded and comprises three dry, pressurised sections including a lock-in/lock-out compartment for the US DOD. Transported in a standard shipping container and deployed from ships or submarines, the DCS is manoeuvred using a bespoke trolley manufactured in Somerset by Metaltech Precision Ltd, part of the Expromet group. The DCS trolley showcases Expromet’s capabilities in manufacturing complex welded fabrications.



“Metaltech’s experience and expertise means they can supply quickly and effectively to the defence sector,” says Brett Phaneuf, Managing Director of MSubs Ltd. “In mission critical situations like this you need a robust and enduring solution – Metaltech was easy to work with and manufactured exactly what we needed.”

Expromet’s advantage in manufacturing for the defence sector lies in the range of expertise within the group. CEO Alistair Schofield says:

“Whether for land, sea or air, military equipment operates in some of the harshest environments on the planet.

Our group of companies offers world-class manufacturing solutions for these demanding sectors.”
