CAST IRON SOLUTION WITH BRAWOLINER® HT

The North of England has long been famous for not just its wonderful landscapes, world renowned cities and the character of its people, it is also globally recognised as a major centre in the growth of the industrial economies we see today. Whilst like many parts of the UK the region has had its ups and downs alongside the vagaries of the economy it still boasts some of the UK’s largest industrial facilities.
