More light metal production
GF Automotive has added automotive diecasting capacity in the U.S. recently, and described its purchase of Eucasting Ro SLR in Romania as more evidence of its plan to expand light-metal parts manufacturing.
Eucasting Ro SLR in Pitesti, Romania, was established in 2006, and produces an estimated 4,250 metric tons/year of light metal finished products for automotive and other customers.
Based on a strong customer demand for aluminum castings, a second plant was set up in 2010 at Scornicesti (about 50 km south of Pitesti.)
Eucasting’s Romanian plants offer automated deburring, sand and shot blasting, and a range of finish machining capabilities.
