With unrivalled workshop facilities located across the North-West of the UK, RJW Engineering is a well-established business, built on tradition but firmly focused on engineering services of the future.
RJW Engineering can trace its roots back to 1946, to the original engineering company called Rewinds. In those days, the core business was ship repairs. By the 1960’s the business had refocused from shipping to land-based industrial repairs. A series of pioneering moves followed, including acquisitions and diversifications. Today RJW Engineering is one the largest and most respected independently owned engineering services companies in the UK.
