JVM casts in-house talent in Group Design Director role

Simon Ruffle of JVM Castings

Simon Ruffle has been appointed Group Design Director at JVM Castings, in a strategic move to improve the company’s service offering by focusing on reducing the lead time to turn customer concepts into finished products.
 
Simon brings to the job a wealth of experience, having risen through the ranks of the company, which he joined in 1996 as a Graduate Engineer. He has worked in almost every department and therefore understands the workings of the business more than most.  
 

JVM Castings joins forces with local universities to develop the products of tomorrow

We have joined forces with the University of Birmingham and Brunel University to collaborate on four research projects which could see major changes in the way castings are manufactured.

JVM are currently working on four separate projects which explore the materials and methods that will help to create lighter weight, stronger, more cost effective products with a reduced carbon footprint, enabling the Midlands to manufacture products that would normally have to be sourced from Europe. 

JVM Castings win the International Die Casting Award for our innovative Jaguar F Type component

For the second time in our 84 year history we have been commended in theInternational Die Casting Awards, sponsored by the North American Die Casters Association (NADCA).

We were awarded in the Structural Aluminium Casting for our pioneering B Pillar casting. The B Pillar is a heat treated body chassis part manufactured in an aluminium alloy, which gives the casting greater ductility and mechanical properties than conventional high pressure aluminium alloys.

JVM Castings expands apprenticeship scheme to create new jobs

JVM Castings are expanding their apprenticeship scheme to attract more local design and engineering students into the industry.

We are keen to create new employment opportunities in the West Midlands to not only pass on vital skills but also ensure the region remains a key contributor in manufacturing.
