Morgan Fry

History

Morgan Fry (Managing Director) began his foundry experience at Cheviot Pacific in 1979, manufacturing a well known and respected brand of alloy wheels. Operating as a Die Caster and Heat Treatment operator he soon worked his way to a managerial position as Foundry Manager.  From there he went to Westside Engineering as Foundry Manager expanding his knowledge further, before becoming the Foundry Manager at Expert Casting Systems (ECS) in Papakura.  

In 1999 Morgan left ECS to purchase South Auckland Foundry in Drury, which was solely a non-ferrous foundry. Before long he moved his business premises to the former ECS site in Papakura, purchasing their equipment and adding their ferrous manufacturing to his own non-ferrous production. 

The team at South Auckland Foundry is small and very hardworking, with years of valuable knowledge between them. The foundry environment is one of the oldest, and toughest industries working today, and some aspects of metal casting are as they have been for centuries, skilled operators with a wealth of knowledge.
