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.

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
Image shows part of the pool structure being installed.
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.
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.
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. Not only can we offer a high quality alternative cutting method we can now cut a much more diverse range of materials - wood, rubber, stainless steel - most materials up to 200 mm thick can be cut using this technology. Please get in touch to discuss how we can help.

We are pleased to have been awarded
EN 1090 and our ISO 9001:2008 award has been renewed. Theses international marques indicate our commitment to setting and maintaining high standards, meeting our customers needs and seeking continuous improvement in how we work.
We recently demonstrated how we can combine our metal and stone cutting skills. We chose Forest Pennant stone, inlaid our name in polished stainless steel and then inscribed our web address. All cut by water jet and installed on the front of our building.
