35 years and still the best in the business

GWR Engineering celebrated over 35 years in the industry this year, and what better way to celebrate than to take a look back on the history of the business and the factors that have driven our success over the years.

G.W.R. Engineering LTD was established back in 1985 with a management and staff of over 40 years of experience within the presswork industry.

At its conception, the original aim of the company was to supply pressed steel parts to both the container repair industry as well as general manufacturing and fabrication companies.

After three years, we expanded and invested in new machines to meet market demand. The decision was made to purchase a 7,000-square-foot manufacturing facility located close to Mersey docks.

Over the next seven years, G.W.R. grew to become a leading supplier of pressed steel parts to the UK fabrication industry. After careful consideration and marketing efforts, in 1992 we expanded our product range to include the fabrication of waste disposal skips.

In 1995 the local council issued a compulsory purchase order on our land to build a new dual carriageway. We soon realised that this was the perfect opportunity to construct a new factory, allowing us to increase our presswork activities and offer a more diverse range in manufacturing of waste disposal equipment.

In March 1996, GWR moved into a purpose-built, newly constructed factory with 16,000 square feet of manufacturing space and extensive office facilities.

Fast forward to the end of 2022 and we’re still seeing much success as a business. We are the leading providers of Pressing and Formed metal sections, supplying to specialist container manufacturers throughout the UK and beyond.

The success that we have achieved over the years is largely due to our simple yet effective ethos. We make and supply high-quality, yet cost-effective products, maintaining strict delivery schedules. All of these factors combined mean that even after 35 years, we’re still the best in the business.
