UPCAST® is the leading supplier of upward continuous casting technology for a wide range of non-ferrous applications.
New Managing Director
Janne Hosio has been appointed the new Managing Director of UPCAST OY as of March 1, 2022. Congratulations! Many of you know Janne from his sales activities as Sales Director and he will work very closely with the sales also in the future. We all want to thank the former Managing Director Jukka Lähteenmäki for his excellent work during his 15 years at UPCAST OY.
First in upcasting
The upward continuous casting method, better known as the UPCAST® system, was originally developed within the Finnish Outokumpu Group in the late ’60s. The outcome resulted from a synthesis of innovative thinking and long production experience.
Always green. Now greener.
UPCAST® technology in itself, has always been an environmentally friendly process. Just electricity, compressed air and a cooling water circulation are needed to keep the process running
The world changed and we with it
The corona virus has caused a lot of changes in the world economy. Some areas have been hit harder and others not so severely, some almost like with silk gloves. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic is globally not yet over, we can already state from UPCAST’s part that we have survived well through this time.
