Cast Metals Federation (CMF)
The voice for the UK cast metals industry
The Cast Metals Federation works to foster development, collaboration and innovation in the UK casting industry, in partnership with businesses and stakeholders, to promote good practice and represent the Best of British casting across the globe.
As the single voice for the UK foundry industry, CMF promotes the UK castings industry as a whole, influencing discussions with government bodies, negotiating and consulting on UK and European legislation that affects us all.
As the UK member of the European Foundry Association (CAEF) and a full member of the Metals Forum, we are well placed to inform and influence.
CMF Members come from every part of the industry and produce around 85% of all castings produced in the UK. From global foundry groups to small jobbing foundries, our Members supply precision finished parts and assemblies in a range of sizes, metals and processes to global markets, valued at over £2.2B.
For manufacturers across the world seeking the ‘Best of British Casting’ the CMF provides a single point of contact, whether for sourcing castings for every application and market sector or general information on the activities of the UK Foundry Industry.
Our small but dedicated team strive to ensure that the needs of UK foundries, foundry suppliers and castings buyers are met.
