Thursday 10th August marked 30 years of service for another one of our dedicated team members.

Andy Dickinson joined the PI Castings in 1987. Over his 30 years with PI Castings he has worked as a foundry operative, a steel finishing operative and a welder. Andy is now responsible for supervising and managing all of the Steel finishing that takes place in our foundry. Andy is also responsible for carrying out weld repair (when necessary) to NADCAP aerospace standards.

In our Steel Finishing department Andy and his team fettle, blast and finish all of the steel investment castings that we produce. Before any castings leave our Steel Finishing they are given a 100% visual inspection to ensure that there are no obvious visible defects. We carry out stringent checks in order to ensure that our castings comply with customer designs and the required manufacturing standards. Our skilled operatives all play a part in ensuring that our products conform before they are given the seal of approval by our quality department and dispatched to our customers.

Andy’s skill and keen attention to detail have been honed over the 30 years that he has worked at PI Castings. His diligence and ability are seen as a great benefit to the company.

To commemorate his achievement and reward his many years of hard work, Andy was awarded a cast foundry man. Andy will also benefit from an additional 3 days holiday by way of thanks for his continued loyalty and service.



Thank you, Andy, for your many years of hard work and dedication.

Andy is just one of the many experienced team members at PI Castings. The cumulative experience in our team allows us to manufacture and deliver high-quality components that meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.
