I knew this foundry when I worked in the foundry chemical industry, and my dad installed a new induction furnace at their A-B Row premises in the 1970's if I recall correctly. They moved to Tyseley, and later to Smethwick. They went into administration a few years ago and were looking for a buyer, but I don't know if they found one. I do remember the Irish foundry manager, a real character and a good laugh. His first name was Dave, I think, but can't remember his surname.
