What did some of our customers say?
“Firstly thank you very much for your time yesterday. I really enjoyed the session and Berne’s presentation. Please send him my regards. I am increasingly convinced Sleipner might do the job well (and Caldie could be the 2nd level upgrade if needed).”
“Thank you for sending the presentations through. It was a worthwhile visit, I think we would be looking at Vanadis 4 Extra”
“I have had feedback from my 2 colleagues who were able to attend, and the feedback has been very positive, so thank you for extending the invite to them.”
“really enjoyed the morning it took me back.”

Uddeholm presented at the Diecasting societies 50th-anniversary technical forum in Solihull, Birmingham.
The Diecasting Society was formed in 1967 to represent the interests of diecasting companies and suppliers to the industry through the promotion of technology while providing forums for discussion and debate. It works with further education establishments to better knowledge and push boundaries.
We are a proud member of the Diecasting society, therefore when we were approached to present at their technical conference we were more than happy to oblige.
Richard Oliver, the Uddeholm global product manager for hot work applications, travelled from the Uddeholm mill in Sweden to visit valued customers in the UK and present on technical developments for hot work tool steels.
Richard focused on new trends in Die Casting and most common die failures related to tool steel. After the event, Richard commented saying;
“The event was extremely successful with a great turnout from current society members. It was also great personally to see some old faces from my time in the UK. It is important that Uddeholm continue supporting the diecasting industry in the UK as well as globally. Therefore we will be at the forefront of new trends and technologies such as structural parts and conformal cooling. Uddeholm continues to see growth in the diecasting industry and it is still today the biggest sector for hot work tool steel worldwide”.
Our UK team based in Oldbury, West Midlands, proudly accepted the SHD Logistics Award for Warehouse Efficiency.
The new KASTO system is the tallest in the UK and one of the largest in Europe. With an average picking time of 6mins, orders can be picked and despatched the same day.
Value-Added solutions give our customers access to cutting, machining, bevelling, testing and other services providing turnkey customer solutions. This includes an onsite testing service, used when customers require additional certification to that supplied by the Mill.
The UK’s strategy is to be a one-stopshop and it looks like that’s exactly what we have achieved.
