The Keech cousins leap into a 3D future

The Keeches built their fortune pouring metal into moulds. Now, while other foundries are closing left and right, they’ve transposed their business into the 21st century with 3D printing.

This afternoon in Bendigo, not far from where gold was discovered in 1851, a group of dignitaries will gather to help an 80-year-old family-owned foundry business called Keech Australia launch a 3D printing business.

The cousins Keech, Garth and David will thus leap from the oldest form of manufacturing to the newest; from the hot, ancient simplicity of pouring molten steel into mouldings, to the cool science fiction of printing objects.
