About Us

Founded in 1965, GWF Engineering Ltd has been providing services to industry for over 50 years offering excellence in machining and fabrication solutions to hundreds of satisfied customers from a broad spectrum of industries.

In addition to servicing the more traditional heavy engineering sectors such as Steel, Mining, Power Generation and Petrochemical, we also work innovatively in the Aerospace, Formula 1 Racing and Renewable Energy industries.

The manufacturing facility is based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and is close to the UK Motorway network and the Humber Ports for ease of transport of large abnormal loads. The workshop facilities total some 35,000 sq.ft. with overhead craneage of 40T single lift and machining capabilities of up to 5.6m diameter.

We maintain a regular workforce of highly trained, skilled craftsmen and have a proactive succession policy involving the recruitment and training of apprentices in all our core disciplines. This provides us with the stability of skills and retention of knowledge required to maintain the high standards to which we work.

GWF has 3 main bays for fabrication totalling some 18,000 sq.ft. serviced by overhead cranes of up to 40T single lift. The 3 machine shops offer Large Machining 2m – 5.6m diameter, Small Machining < 1.8m, and a CNC Shop housing CNC Lathes and Machining Centres.

In addition to offering general sub contract machining and fabrication services to customer supplied drawings, we also offer design and build.

We employ coded welders and work to BS EN15614, BS EN ISO 9606 and ASME IX Standards as applicable. We carry NDT Technicians/Inspectors to PCN Level II in house and can offer Radiography and Ultrasonic Inspection through a UCAS NDE Inspection Company at our works.

We have in house rolling, pressing and CNC Profiling which enables us to minimise subcontracting work and maximise control from both a quality and delivery aspect.

The company is committed to providing goods and services of the highest quality and operates a Quality Assurance Management System to BS EN ISO 9001:2008 which is independently audited by Lloyds Register of Quality Assurance.

We are also accredited to BS EN 1090-2:2008 + A1:2011 up to and including Execution Class 3.
