Our History

75 Years Of Excellence

From manhole covers to fully fledged foundries, the history of Milson Group started with one simple idea – to start a family run metal casting business in the heart of New Zealand. But back in 1947, what founder Edward Nathanial Davis did not realise is that he was casting much more than just iron or brass – Edward was casting the future of Kormax.
