In the past the foundry had supplies of coke, scrap metal and pig iron delivered by horse and cart from the railway station.
Most local mills, factories and businesses used the foundry to supply their iron work, including Aireborough Urban District Council who bought grates for Baxi fires which were fitted in Council houses.
