EB Castings crafting metal and specialised printing

Updated: Mar 23

Recently EB Castings, spearheaded by Jarryd Phillips, was featured on East Coast Radio and the KZN Future 50. Take a listen to the podcast.

EB Castings, a burgeoning business in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), has swiftly emerged as a unique player in the manufacturing sector, specialising in metal castings and specialised printing services. Founded by Jarryd Phillips, who spearheads the company, EB Castings has swiftly carved a niche for itself by blending two distinct businesses amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The genesis of EB Castings traces back to a fortuitous encounter at a dinner gathering, where Phillips seized an opportunity to acquire a business dealing with printing equipment and manufacturing products. Subsequently, during the tumultuous period of the pandemic, Phillips amalgamated this printing venture with his father's business, which was engaged in manufacturing metal castings. This strategic union birthed EB Castings, offering a diverse range of services including manufacturing metal castings and specialised printing on various surfaces such as glass, ceramics, and metal.

The core competency of EB Castings lies in its ability to cater to diverse market needs, ranging from crafting metal fixtures like table clamps to offering customised printing solutions for promotional items. Leveraging their expertise, EB Castings has positioned itself as a go-to partner for organisations seeking personalised promotional products, commemorative medals, and customised merchandise.

Looking ahead, Phillips envisions EB Castings as a pivotal player in the hospitality, eventing, and tourism sectors, aiming to become a premier distributor of glass and ceramicware. With a focus on providing quality products at competitive prices, along with personalised branding options, EB Castings aims to solidify its foothold in the market and contribute significantly to the local economy.


Despite facing challenges such as consistency in supply and pricing dynamics, EB Castings remains steadfast in its pursuit of growth and expansion. Phillips underscores the importance of securing adequate resources to bolster their inventory and meet the growing demand for their products.


In line with their growth trajectory, EB Castings anticipates substantial benefits for the KZN economy, including job creation through potential expansion of their workforce. Furthermore, by establishing itself as a local supplier of glass, ceramicware, and casting manufacturer, EB Castings aims to foster economic resilience and promote local entrepreneurship within the region.


The call to action for the KZN Community is to connect the EB Castings team with the large promotional companies who can lean on EB Castings for the production of their promotional materials – and as a result support the growth of another KZN business!


As EB Castings continues to evolve and expand its footprint, it exemplifies the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation, contributing to the economic vitality of KZN while leaving an indelible mark in the manufacturing landscape.
