Castings firm Chamberlin & Hill has launched a new facility in Walsall, creating more than 30 jobs.

The 21,245 sq ft unit at Bloxwich Lane Estate will be used by the company to make turbo-charger bearing housings. The products are installed in vehicles to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

The move is part of a £1.6m investment by Chamberlin & Hill and will result in the creation of 33 jobs.

Chief executive Kevin Nolan said:

“These new facilities support our work at our Walsall foundry, which is a leading producer of bearing housings for the automotive industry. Our new machining capability will help to drive a new phase of growth and we expect to be increasing our investment in the site further as production builds.”

London & Cambridge Properties (LCP) owns and manages Bloxwich Lane Estate and agreed a ten-year lease with Chamberlin & Hill.
