If potential suppliers don’t share our own ethical values, they don’t supply to us; it’s as simple as that.

We have a team of purchasing professionals who responsibly source globally for our projects, guaranteeing that our customers receive real quality, great value and a world class service.

With a wealth of experience and an annual spend of over £30 million, our procurement team maintains and controls an approved supplier base catering for a full spectrum of market sectors. We work to standardising the consistency and quality of the goods and services that we provided.

Adding real value to a customer’s projects through the management of complex procurement has been key to our success. We procure for technical and specification-heavy orders from raw material and sub-systems to complete items. This enables our customers’ projects to be streamlined while dealing with just one interface.

Our sister company Goodwin Steel Castings, established in 1883 is our main supplier of cast metal.

They hold a number of accreditations including ASME NCA 3800 certification for supply of castings into the nuclear sector.

We believe that ethical behaviour is imperative; as such we hold a long term outlook and strong belief that acting as an intermediary and managing the supply chain process on behalf of our clients leads to stronger relationships with our customers.

Our procurement strategy is a based upon long term goals and not short term profit. It is this that has helped us to build strong relationships with our suppliers for the benefit of our customers. We consider our suppliers to be strategic partners and as such we work closely with them to develop their own capabilities and processes so that they are working inline with ourselves.

The automation of our work-flow allows us to track the whole manufacturing process from procurement right through to despatch. In addition all project reports are generated from this system for accurate, real time data for stock control, plant productivity and man hour utilisation.
