A Company With Heritage

Specialised Castings is the only Iron Foundry left in the Falkirk area, the area which was the birthplace of the Scottish Foundry Industry and at one time hosted scores of foundries.

Specialised Castings can trace its history back to the second ever foundry to be set up in the Falkirk Area - Falkirk Iron Works which was formed in 1819 by workers from Carron Iron Works. The company passed through several owners over the years remaining on the original Falkirk site until 1981 when it moved to the site of the old Dobbies Foundry in Foundry Loan Larbert. By this time it was owned by Falcon Catering equipment, part of the Glynwed Group. It became known as Falcon Castings, initially producing light iron and alloy iron castings for its parent company as well as components for its sister company the world famous heating and cooking manufacturer Aga based in Coalbrookdale in Shropshire.

It was at this time it was decided to use the expertise of its workforce and return to the manufacture of engineering castings for external customers. Falcon castings continued to produce high quality Engineering Castings and light iron and aluminium castings until its parent Company decided in 2001 to consolidate all its foundry production to its coalbrookdale foundry and buy castings from global producers.

After a management buyout, the Falcon plant and equipment as well as the cream of the Falcon workforce moved to new premises in an old paper mill in nearby Denny where Specialised Castings Ltd was born and continues to grow to this day producing high quality castings for a wide variety of customers.
