- Two ABP induction furnaces with melting capacity of 5 tons each.
The total melting capacity of Cranfield Foundry is approximately 13,000 tons per year.
Beside the foundry facility, Cranfield Foundry built a 110/20 kV substation and a transmission line of 1.7 km.
"The first pour and grand opening of Cranfield Foundry are the result of a combination of efforts by our strong local team in North Macedonia, global foundry experts, our suppliers, as well as local and national government officials supporting this investment", said Mr. Dariusz Dziuba, Chief Executive Officer at Cranfield Foundry.
"Getting the Probishtip facility up and running will enable us to produce the best quality grey and ductile iron castings for our customers well into the future. With this foundry located in the Central Balkans, we are now in the best position to serve our customers in fast growing European and Middle East markers in the most efficient way possible", adds Mr. Dziuba.
