R. Goodwin & Sons (Engineers) Ltd

"This old established firm has many years of experience from which to draw the knowledge and craft required in the manufacture of its products, founded in 1833, it has continuously produced iron castings and engaged in heavy engineering, to-day being one of the large iron foundries in the Midlands.

The foundry manufactures castings in high grade qualities, laboratory controlled, alloyed for specific duties and strengths, up to a unit weight of ten tons, for the machine tool, railing mill and the chemical industries. During recent years the precision casting of moulds for the rubber tyre industry has been developed, resulting in the firm becoming a major supplier to that trade.

Recently, due to the firm's outstanding name for quality production, the Mond Nickel Company Limited entrusted it with a licence to manufacture the new Spheroidal Graphite Iron (bendable cast iron) having strengths greatly m excess of grey cast iron.

The building of machines and the machining of castings is taken care of by extensive machine shops, equipped with the most up-to-date machine tools, enabling the firm to produce straight from the drawing hoard to the finished machine."
