Bridgnorth based manufacturer Grainger and Worrall have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, specifically for their work on Next Generation Castings.

The automotive market is driving towards ever more complex and structurally sound castings, particularly in high performance aluminium alloys. In achieving the award, Grainger and Worrall has been recognised for the innovation and expertise it brings the highest performance applications in motorsport, automotive and prototyping across many industries.

Grainger and Worrall’s services bring together an unrivalled suite of technologies, spanning material science, process innovation, casting, machining and rapid validation techniques.

The development of Next Generation Castings supports the transition from internal combustion engine to electrification, provides complex structural components, and allows customers the ability to design metal shapes which otherwise would be impossible to imagine. The developments have significant positive impacts on the environment, with customers being able to develop smaller and higher output drive units.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation was presented to Grainger and Worrall on the 22nd September 2021 by Mrs Anna Turner JP, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire.

Grainger and Worrall’s Managing Director Edward Grainger says: “We’re honoured to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, for an incredible third time. As a company, Grainger and Worrall are committed to leading in the changing manufacturing market, and this award highlights our continued dedication to expertise, innovation and adaptation in sand castings. Achieving the award is very much a company-wide, team effort and we could not be more pleased that we have been recognised again’.
