The history of DCM group goes back to 1889 with the Delhi Cloth Mills, when industry was in its infancy in India. Visualising the tremendous boom in the automobile sector both nationally and internationally, the DCM Group setup a Grey Iron Foundry in 1977 with the capacity of 17000 Metric Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) as Division of DCM Limited at village Asron, Tehsil Balachaur, Distt Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, Punjab. This division was subsequently hived off from DCM Limited as an independent company "DCM Engineering Limited” in 2004 (effective April 2001).

Capacity of this foundry was increased to 35,000 & 50,000 MTPA in the year 1994-95 & 2005-06 respectively. Recently, this capacity has been increased to 72,000 MTPA. This foundry is one of the leading foundries in India, in the segment of Automotive Castings. The foundry specializes in the manufacture of Cylinder Heads, Cylinder Blocks and Housings.
