DMI Young & Cunningham can trace its history back to 1924.

Throughout this time the business philosophy has been to offer to the market the highest quality product at a competitive price, well designed and expertly manufactured, guaranteeing longevity of service.
We manufacture valves and other bronze castings to order, utilising the vast experience of the workforce here in North Shields. Many of our people have been with us for over 20 years.
