Thailand Tsunami

Breaking the mould for aid. Moulders at Premier Castings worked overtime to cast a stuffing box for a power station in Krabi, Thailand.
The orderĀ arrived at the foundry in Green on Thursday evening via a Glasgow contact. Such was the urgency, later that eveniTsunami Aidng, managing
director David Lees received a second call. Three Japanese from Hitachi Power wanted to know if they could call and collect the cast the next morning, said an astonished Mr Lees. Although the job was not too big at around 90 kilos, it still took most of Friday and when the transport arrived early on Saturday morning it was still cooling. The box was taken back to Scotland when the team from Japan undertook further work before the “Made in Oldham” box was flown to a power station in Thailand devastated by the tsunami. Added Mr Lees: before, and obviously we were happy to help. We had to put the job ahead of other orders but I know that our customers were fully understanding. In the end we were only around an hour behind our schedule
