About us

Created in 1957 by the late Mr D H Evans, Coleshill Aluminium remains to this day the longest running aluminium refiner in the UK and Europe.

Today the company sits safely in the hands of two further generations of the Evans family, reassuring its future for many years to come.

Standard ingots weigh approximately seven kilograms which are packed in one or half tonne secure bundles. We have, of course, BSI Quality Assurance registration BS EN ISO 9001:2015.

Our laboratory, is able to provide testing to the standards required by UKAS accreditation, meeting the requirements of both the CAA and MOD.

We are conveniently situated at the centre of the motorway network; deliveries are effected promptly to customers’ instructions by our own fleet of vehicles.

We always carry comprehensive stocks of primary and secondary aluminium alloys to United Kingdom, European and World specifications.

In addition to operating our own fleet of lorries for prompt deliveries, we also have the backing of independent hauliers to ensure all our customers receive their metal on time. This service is only made possible as a result of having comprehensive stocks of assorted alloys in our stores.
At Coleshill Aluminium Limited we take great care when it comes to environment awareness; recycling our raw material is only one part of the cycle, we do this in partnership with the local authority and other bodies to ensure that we conform to all Environmental Health and Safety Standards.

Throughout that time they have been consistent exponents of quality and best practice in the production of foundry ingot.

They have taken a lead in the UK industry of producing analysis standards to ensure consistency of quality and analysis of alloy placed on the market, and continue to be the main suppliers of these analytical standards to members and their customers.
