Our latest arrival

If you are passionate about engineering the arrival of a new machine is always exciting and we are very pleased with our latest investment. Continuing our relationship with Bystronic we have now increased our capacity with an additional press brake. The 3 metre, 150 tonne press brake - XPERT  PR 150  - is also a very green machine, turning itself off after every bend. Contact us to discuss how this machine can help you.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

We are pleased to have made  contributions to Chelsea Flower Show over a number of years. In 2014 we worked on elements of two  show gardens both of which won Silver Gilt. Continuing our relationship with Simon Percival of http://www.artinthelandscape.com/ we made a metal structure for The Cloudy Bay Sensory Garden and a framework for a pool that formed part of 'The Extending Space' garden designed by Auderset Fischer

Stainless steel bench support

In 2012 we were commissioned to work on 3 items for separate gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower show. Working with Gloucestershire based company Art in the Landscape we constructed the major elements of the ripple pool which formed the centrepiece of the World Vision garden. This garden won a Silver medal. The same company sought our help in making elements of the garden bench in the Caravan Club garden. This too was an award winner, securing a Silver Gilt.

 

Finally, working in collboration with Purbeck Stone Ltd we undertook to turn the designer's Arts & Crafts inspired patterning in the stone into a reality. In a complex and precise operation we created a series of holes in stone slabs which subsequently became the 3 walls of the M&G garden. This won a coveted Gold medal.

 

Whilst most people tuned in to the BBC's coverage to look at the beautiful planting in the gardens our eyes were firmly on the items we had help create. Each one demanded accuracy, prompt and careful handling and attention to the detail of the designer's brief.

Projects large and small

Woodford has been involved in a number of other prestigious projects, including this stone compass installation in Ebbw Vale. Using the water jet's accurate cutting we were able to cut and align 3 types of stone  in shapes and lettering. The 6.6 metre project was completed by adding stainless steel compass points.

 

 

Other projects in stone have included new signage for the University of Bristol, assisting with the renovation of Hereford Cathedral Close and an installation commemorating the City of Newport's hosting of the 2010 Ryder Cup which is currently sited in the entrance to Newport Civic Centre.

We recently assisted a company developing a new business game - Stratergise. Face with problems in the manufacture of components we found practical solutions using water jet cutting. Read their story.

Woodford invests in water jet cutter

We are pleased to announce significant investment in a Bystronic Byjet 3015 abrasive water jet cutter. This will enable us to expand our service to customers.
