Thomas Thoms origins as
a manufacturer of lead products date forward from 1881.
Our Founder Thomas Thoms began operations at Summer
Hill, initially making water tanks and other associated
galvanised iron products.
Gradually the product range was extended to incorporate
lead fabrication such as pipe, washers, cable covers
and sheeting, and the galvanised iron products were
the late 1950's, we moved into the manufacture of Aluminum
Dampcourse from feedstock purchased from outside fabricators.
the early 1960's we purchased a Two-High 24 inch wide
Reversing Brass Rolling Mill which was converted to
roll aluminum slab, with inter-stage Heat Treatment
being carried out in an Annealing Oven Built by others
to our requirements.
1975, a Hunter Continuous Strip Aluminum Casting Machine
was installed to produce continuous Aluminum Sheet from
1983, a 48 inch Rolling Mill was purchased to allow
coils up to 600mm wide to be rolled. The earlier 24
inch rolling Mil has now been upgraded to permit rolling
of 600mm wide material to give us reserve capacity in
the event of maintenance disruption to our 48 inch Mill
or abnormal demand.
