United Cast Bar (UK) Ltd are part of the United Cast Bar Group which is the world leader in both the manufacture and distribution of Unibar continuously cast iron bar and is proud to have its Head Office based at our UK Foundry in Chesterfield.
United Cast Bar currently has a manufacturing base that can produce more than 80,000 tons / annum of Unibar cast iron, and a permanent stock of 20,000 tons in its two foundries Chesterfield and Zaragosa, with multiple distribution centres throughout Europe and the Far East. Further to this we have offices in Istanbul, Dubai, Singapore and representation in 20 other countries. We also work closely with global OEM customers and distribution partners across the world to make Unibar available wherever there is a need for our material.
We see being environmentally and socially responsible as a prerequisite for operating on the Global stage as customers and organisations become more conscious and aware of their supply chain. UCB is committed to control its environmental impact, minimise waste, maximise recycling opportunities to ensure we exceed all legislative requirements set today.
As a company dedicated to innovation and always pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved within the continuous casting arena, the future looks bright for United Cast Bar, as it continues to develop high quality products that offer great benefits to its diverse range of customers.
With an eye on future workforce needs, we have developed partnerships with local schools bringing together the education, engineering and manufacturing sector by regularly inviting school children to the foundry.
If we are to develop our young people and retain their talent in the UK, schools must start bringing manufacturing and engineering careers to their attention. To look forward we must look back; getting young people interested in the sector is a great first step.
Partnerships with local schools have reaped rewards and we now have a strong apprenticeship programme funded through our Apprenticeship Levy. We see apprenticeships as key to succession planning and closing the skills gap at the company.
