Our Company


Back in 1990, we set up a small business that sourced products from the Far East.


This was long before the days of Alibaba and AliExpress.


We had to work hard to identify quality manufacturers. We had to pick up the phone and speak with people. We had to get on the plane and make regular visits to develop and nurture these business relationships.


In today’s digital world, it’s easier than ever to order products from the Far East.


But it’s not easy to find reputable, trustworthy, skilled manufacturers that consistently deliver high-quality, popular products.


And it’s not easy to refine and hone a sourcing network so that it consists only of the most skilled craftspeople and the most reputable foundries.


We managed to do it, but it took 25 years!


Those years of hard work have resulted in us developing a range of cast iron products that lead the way in terms of quality, design and value for money.


It’s no coincidence that Cast Iron Wholesale has grown to dominate the market for novelty & collectable cast iron products both in the UK and internationally.

Our warehouse is located in Staines, Middlesex, in in the UK. But we supply customers who are based everywhere - it makes no difference if you are located a few miles down the road, in Continental Europe, or further afield.


And although we have grown in size, we have always maintained a personal approach. We’re big enough to compete on volume and price, but small enough to care about every single customer we serve.




Our Cast Iron Products


We stock a range of wholesale vintage cast iron items, including wholesale antique reproductions.  


Cast iron is a marvellous metal to work with. It’s perfect for creating everything from hard-wearing outdoor signs, to strong iron coat hooks, to intricate garden ornaments or animal figurines.


When you pick up one of our cast iron products, the weight and feel of the metal in your hand tells you something loud and clear: this item is strong and it is going to last.


And the vast majority of our products are carefully hand-painted to preserve the vintage, retro and antique feel that customers love.


We find that the combination of cast iron metal with a hand-painted finish is perfect for the type of nostalgia-style products that are so popular with customers right now, such as retro auto signs, railway signs, garden ornaments and animal figures - all of which make for unique gifts too.


It goes without saying that the vast majority of our items are ideal for both outdoor and indoor use.
