International Track 200

Bonds produces valve, pump and general engineering castings for various industries. Operating from two foundries in the north of England, the company specialises in both precision castings and large castings of up to 12 tonnes in weight. International sales growth has been driven by its move to supply customers such as GE and Siemens directly, and boosted by the weak pound. International sales increased 118% a year, from £1.1m in 2007 to £5.2m in 2009.
