Part of the $175 million Texmo Group of Companies, Texmo Precision Castings was born in 1992 to manufacture steel castings, exporting to global markets. The level of industry competition pushed us to deliver a superior, quality product and service.

Texmo History

TODAY WE EMPLOY 750 PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE, WITH PLANTS IN THE US & INDIA

Our state-of-the art, highly automated manufacturing facilities in the US and India manufacture round-the-clock, ensuring we can deliver the best possible product to meet even the tightest of deadlines.

Our ISO certified manufacturing plants exceed 200,000 sq.ft. with further areas designated for future expansions to respond to demand increases. We constantly reinvest funds into the research and development of machinery and automated systems to ensure we’re at the forefront of investment castings manufacture.

We are the only commercial casting plant to have locations in Asia and US. This gives our customers a strategic choice where to buy and helps with risk contingency, even making castings in both plants if required.

Along the way we’ve picked up various awards for our investment castings, which is testament to our process, and the high level of product and service we strive for.
