Longton Light Alloys appreciates that the best way to sustain business and build strong partnerships is to learn and understand our customers requirements.
With experience we have established our business on four main key objectives:
Customer service is at the top of our list, the customer is the most important part of our business and we will always, wherever possible, provide the right product to suit your requirements.
Providing castings that are consistently of good quality means working to a goal of excellence.
By implementation of quality control systems such as BS EN ISO 9001 continuous investment in training, plant and equipment we feel that this standard of excellence is applied to every casting we produce . Customers or potential customers are welcome to carry out 3rd party audits and inspection of our quality control systems.
Value for Money
Longton Light Alloys main aim is to provide good quality castings at a competitive price. We only purchase from approved suppliers allowing us complete traceability of all the raw materials used in the manufacture of our castings. Unfortunately we have seen too many times where people have taken the option of cheap castings and have suffered the consequences of poor quality and wasted costs. Longton Light Alloys works to a high standard and then offers this standard of service and quality at a competitive price.
One of the keys aspects of what we offer our customers is our commitment to meet delivery times requested. We can offer complete traceability and an extremely flexible service due to our unique capabilities and can offer continuous monitoring of production through our computer based operating systems.
