    To the best of my knowledge, aluminum tubes are generally extruded, not cast in any way.

    In the US, there is a company called "Thomas Register" which now has a web site. They break down and list companies in the US & Canada into catagories depending on what they manufacture or services they provide. I have to believe there's an equivalent service in Europe. I wonder if anyone knows what it is?

    You might find some people spin casting tubes. What kind of tubes? Are we talking hydraulic tubing?

    GT Tubes in Sheffield might be worth a shot, couldn't find them on Google though. Perhaps try directory enquiries?
