About us


My name is Nick Shilton and I own Shilton Cast Iron and Welding jointly with my wife, Hayley. I work mainly in the workshop, and she works mainly in the office, and this seems to suit us rather well! 

We founded the business in 2005. Following 15 years working in the cast iron industry but not solely for myself, I decided to take the plunge and, luckily, Hayley jumped in with me (although not literally, as she was expecting our second child at any moment and couldn’t really jump at all). 

We are dedicated to our business and have delighted in watching it grow year after year. We have had the privilege of serving businesses and individuals from all over the world, always working on projects so diverse it can be difficult to believe they are made from the same material – cast iron.

We can be repairing the cast iron claw foot from an old Victorian bath one day and welding the broken casting of a massive 36-tonne gas turbine at a power station the next.

We love our work; no two days are the same.

Originally, much of our work came from foundries. However as the market declined, sectors such as gas and oil and water replaced it. We also have projects from other sectors such as power generation, industrial and marine, and even the art world.

At Shilton Cast Iron and Welding we can repair your cast iron machinery or component in a fraction of the time it would take to buy new – and when we fix something, we fix it to last. An item repaired by us will last as long, if not longer, than a brand new one. And that’s a promise.

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope to hear from you soon!
Nick and Hayley Shilton
