OVERVIEW
The Engineered Products Division is a leading designer and manufacturer of large, highly-engineered
steel castings and differentiated consumable products to the mining, resource, transportation,
and energy industries. The Division manages foundries throughout North America and the
United Kingdom.
The Division works with OEMs to manufacture highly specialised capital products that are mission
critical and require first run production integrity. Bradken’s understanding and knowledge in material
selection, computer modelling and non-destructive testing ensures our position as a market leader.
These OEM products are then shipped around the world for use.
The Division manages two businesses:
Energy
manufacture for the global energy and power generation markets with offshore oil and gas
platform components, pumps, valves and gas compressors.
Industrial Products
manufacture predominantly for the rail and transit, mining and construction,
military and other specialised heavy industrial markets.

well-known, blue-chip customers such as Caterpillar
