All about the Photocast family
How did Photocast start life? Well, in 1988 we rented a corner of a Liverpool warehouse and our equipment consisted of a mini sized zinc etching bath, some assorted bench tools and the smallest of paint spray booths. Our main business was in producing etched and painted plaques and nameplates. Over the next few years, however, the business started to grow. In 1991 we had the opportunity to add historical interpretation panels to our product range and, in partnership with Eagle Promotions, we also added golf tee signs.
This increase in business meant that we had to bid farewell to our warehouse space and relocate to larger premises. We bought Lynwood Hall which was an old church with an attached church hall. Consequently we had to invest in new and larger equipment and, more importantly, we had to recruit extra staff with the artisan skills we needed to meet our needs and to progress our business.
As Photocast continued to expand our range of products grew still further to include pattern making and finishing cast bronze and soon we realised that we were beginning to outgrow Lynwood Hall.
In 2006 we moved into our current home at Venture Point West. This was a purpose built industrial unit that gave us 6000 square feet of workshop space and a further 2000 square feet of office space in which to house our art workers and creative staff.
From relatively humble beginnings we have now become the Photocast of today. We have grown our staffing from two to fourteen and, in addition to our existing equipment, we have added state of the art computer graphic systems and a CNC capability.
We enjoy, what we consider to be, a well earned reputation for good crafted work across our whole range of products. Take a look through our website and browse our gallery of photographs; consider whether we may be able to help you with one of your projects.
