1 "BIRMAL". Pressure Die Castings in Light & Heavy Non-Ferrous Alloys. (Excluding Copper Base Alloys).
Birmingham: Birmingham Aluminium Casting (1903) Co.Ltd, nd.

Maroon cloth, gilt title to front, sunning to spine. G+.** "Birmid was made up of several Smethwick foundries that came together to form the industrial giant. Some of these firms dated back to the earliest days of the 20th century, such as Birmingham Aluminium Castings, founded in 1903. Birmal, as the business was popularly known, was one of the first aluminium foundries in the country and established a reputation in the burgeoning motor parts industry of the 20th century. It made the very first die-cast aluminium pistons in the world and during the First World War it pioneered aircraft engine casting. In 1920 Birmal merged with the Midland Motor Cylinder Company, creating the name Birmid.....The main Birmid works closed in the 1980s and the firm was once more divided into its constituent parts, some of which, such as Darcast, are still in production today."
