We manufacture from our facility located in the heart of Staffordshire. Our facility allows us to manufacture components for a wide range of sectors including the nuclear, defence, oil & gas, power generation, aerospace and renewable industries. Goodwin International have 41 Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines on site, which range in size and manufacturing capability. This gives us capacity time in excess of 250,000 hours per year.
We manufacture and supply a multitude of components, from primary circuit reactor components standing 4 metres in height and 5.5 metres in diameter, to machined and welded assemblies up to 100,000kg. Our wealth of experience is just based around huge components; we also manufacture small speciality items such as non-return valves with a diameter of 105mm, weighing just 3kg.
Our facility operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we are here to provide critical support for our client’s projects, using our facilities and experience to deliver our continued excellence both now and in the future.
We actively encourage our clients to visit our site; to come and witness first-hand the reinvestment we continue to make into our business. We are consistent in our approach to staff training, procuring the most technologically advanced machinery and creating opportunities by truly excelling.
