Doncasters Group Ltd is an industry leader in the manufacture of automotive turbocharger components. The company specialises in both turbine and compressor wheels, gear components and fasteners and can trace its history in precision casting back to 1907.
The company has over 40 years' experience with turbocharger technology and employs innovative manufacturing techniques for the production of components for both the commercial vehicle and passenger car turbo diesel markets.
Demand for Euro 4/5 emission compliant technology, which offers similar performance levels to petrol engine light vehicles but vastly improved fuel efficiency, is growing very rapidly in Western Europe.
The division has manufacturing facilities in the UK and USA and is able to offer remarkably short 'time to market' solutions for key turbocharger OEMs such as Honeywell, BorgWarner, Holset and IHI.
Our components are manufactured to extremely demanding specifications to ensure that we meet our customers' requirements for dimensional tolerances and mechanical properties. These specifications reflect the operating conditions of the components within the turbocharger, where wheels rotate at speeds of up to 150,000 rpm and can operate at temperatures in excess of the theoretical melting point of the alloy.
Our three Turbocharger Components businesses are able to supply tens of thousands of components every week and have recently taken steps to significantly increase capacity in order to cope with the very strong demand for our products.
We also offer a range of specialist components and assemblies to the broader transportation (Hyperlink HERE) market.
Every Doncasters division is totally committed to 'lean manufacturing' and has an ongoing policy of finding ways to improve efficiency at the lowest possible cost but without sacrificing quality or our ability to meet customer demands. We are in many respects an industry leader offering a 'ready to install' components to our customer base.
Attention to detail, responding to client requirements as regards specifications, product delivery and manufacturing costs that are highly competitive are 'high priority' for the group.
