Our world class manufacturing facility, coupled with our unique capability set enables us to deliver components for a variety of projects which provides our clients with an extensive range of experience and capability in manufacturing largescale components and associated assemblies of a demanding technical nature to a high quality level.

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.

We pride ourselves on our experienced workforce, employing only the best machinists, programmers and manufacturing engineers in the industry.

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.


Seiki - Resource Management

A proprietary advanced manufacturing, capacity management and production planning tool that delivers customer satisfaction through accurate and transparent plans. Each activity associated with the manufacturing process of a component is broken down into individual operations. We then utilise Seiki to appropriately allocate time and resources for each project. Embedded within this system are all CNC machines, shop floor calendars, scheduled maintenance plans, operator shift patterns and booked holidays which are plotted against the live status of our existing order book. This allows for effective utilisation of our assets through scenario planning, capacity management and effective decision making.

Siemens NX

Goodwin International makes great use of this advanced software which is used for special projects. This enables our programmers to fully simulate the machining process from condition of supply to the finish machined items. Our programmers input geometrical information on to the models which then produce the customers required component. This enables any high risk features to be identified prior to machining.


Used by our programmers for general engineering and valve components, this software allows the programmers to implement basic geometries onto 3D models issued by our highly experienced design team. Using this software reduces many risk factors from the operations that the component will undertake during machining.
