The Stroud Metal Company offers Engineering Apprenticeships at its manufacturing site in Gloucestershire.

With roots dating back to the 19th century, Stroud Metal Company was officially incorporated in 1926 and is still a privately owned, family run business. Back then, the company supplied manufacturers of walking sticks and umbrellas, as well as the fledgling automotive industry.

Deep Drawn Pressings
Stroud Metal has been on the cutting edge of deep drawn pressings technology for nearly a century, innovating highly developed methods to deliver cost-effective precision components to customers across a wide range of industries and regions.
Stroud Metal Company’s expertise in deep draw pressings means the company can manufacture an unparalleled range of parts that traditionally have been created by other processes, such as turning, casting or assembly. Deep draw can produce highly aesthetic complex designs that other manufacturing techniques can’t create without using expensive secondary operations. It’s also hugely versatile, capable of manufacturing items of any size, and in a variety of shapes.Some examples of common household items which are manufactured with deep draw pressed components include:
  • batteries
  • lipstick tubes / cosmetics containers
  • asthma inhalers
  • catheter holders
  • metal pen lids
  • metal ball point pen refills
  • “widgets” in beer cans
  • plumbing and heating fittings.
  • large enclosures

Stroud Metal Company’s new 7,500 sq m bespoke manufacturing facility will accommodate both Stroud Metal and its sister company, Cotsworld Plastics. The new building will allow optimisation of the production layout and will include new presses and advanced cleaning equipment, as well as Class 7 clean rooms for the packaging and manufacture of products for the Advanced Automotive, Aerospace and Medical markets.
