James White Engineering Group Ltd

2 - Oxfordshire and Essex


AS9100, ISO 9001 Approved Fine Limit Sheet Metal Specialists

James White Engineering (JWE) was founded in Reading in 1953, having previously been a coach company. We diversified into engineering due to the shortage of parts to maintain our coaches following the Second World War. The only way to get these parts was to make them in-house! Word got around about our engineering capabilities and a business was born.


We use 'RADAN' and ‘Solid Edge’ for 3D modelling concepts. Our engineers can draw, program and manufacture prototypes for customer approval. We also offer technical support and advice and can make recommendations on the most cost effective process for each requirement.

Quality Control
We are approved to AS 9100 and have a dedicated quality control / inspection dept. Works orders identify which employee carried out each operation and materials are all fully traceable.

We can fit free issue components and can also reduce our customers' time and labour costs by part assembly of units before delivery. We use automatic and semiautomatic machines for the installation of fixings.


CNC Punching
Controlled by CAD/CAM stations, our punching machines offer a fast turnround and have a tremendous flexibility to accommodate various materials, shapes and volumes. Highly accurate and consistent, this is further enhanced by the Planar flat sheet digital inspection system which compares the punched product with the original drawing to ensure complete accuracy.

We are able to produce various types of pipework including hydraulic, air and fluid.

We offer all types of welding from Mig, Tig, plasma, spotwelding, brazing and aluminium brazing. JWE is CAA approved.

Laser Cutting
We use the latest state of the art Amada laser machine which gives complete flexibility whilst achieving very accurate profiling at high processing speeds.

Pressing / Forming
Our Amada brake-presses are NC controlled and provide the capability for fast prototyping control. Our flexibility includes order volumes, handmade tooling and special requirements such as rubber pressing, power pressing and deep draw pressing.

Plating / Powder Coating / Wet Painting
We use local facilities to cater for corrosion protection, decorative finishes, unlimited colour choice and fast turn-around.
