…not far from Liverpool’s Docklands to its current 8000 square feet purpose built workshops and offices in the vibrant South Liverpool area, close to the John Lennon Airport and other major transport links, the growth of Photocast is a remarkable and interesting story.
Photocast started life 1988 as a small zinc etching plant with assorted bench tools and the smallest of paint spray booths. Our main business was in producing etched and painted plaques and name plates. Over the next few years the business stared to grow and in the early 90’s we added Historical Interpretation panels, Blue Plaque Schemes, and Golf Course Signage. The increase in business gave the company its first enjoyable growing pains and we had to bid farewell to the small section of a warehouse and move to Lynwood Hall, an old church with a church hall attached. We invested in larger equipment and, more importantly, the recruitment of extra staff with the artisan skills we need to progress our business.
