A Company with a Great History

Darcast was founded in 1915 under the name Dartmouth Auto Castings. At that time, the Company manufactured a wide range of cast components for the automotive market.

In 1950, the Company began manufacturing cast crankshafts using greensand technology.

In 1965, the Company produced the first cast crankshafts using shell mould technology.

From 1965 onwards, the Company focussed all of its energy and resources on developing shell-moulded cast crankshaft technology. This long history has culminated in Darcast being recognised as a world leader in the manufacture of cast crankshafts.
