GoodFabs is the winner of Buckinghamshire's first High Performance Technology & Motorsport (HPTM*) Business of the Year award. The Aylesbury-based company was announced as the winner of the award - sponsored by Silverstone Park - at last night's glitzy Buckinghamshire Business Awards ceremony. Presenting the trophy was MEPC's Roz Bird, Commercial Director for Silverstone Park. Other finalists were Silverstone Park company EDM Precision and Monodraught, based in High Wycombe. GoodFabs is a world-leading expert in shaping, fabricating and welding thin wall alloys, in particular Inconel - a specialist nickel alloy that performs at very high temperatures. Many major championships and motorsport teams - including those from Formula 1 - use its products. Demand for its skills in America's world-famous NASCAR category has also led to it opening a US branch. MD Neil Morgan commented: "This is fantastic for us. Coming first in such a high-profile category - particularly in Buckinghamshire which is among the biggest commercial counties in Britain - really is a big deal.
"In top motorsport you only tend to get noticed when your product suffers a failure! So this is great recognition of how we've gone about working in an industry for over 30 years and of the investment we've made in people in the company. We've got 30 very talented, hard-working fabricators, machine operators and engineers. "To be associated with an award sponsored by Silverstone Park adds massive credibility and kudos - it's a name recognised in the world of motorsport and increasingly in high-tech engineering." "Our award is all about discovering the best-performing HPTM companies in Buckinghamshire, which is an integral part of the Silverstone Technology Cluster. The county has a glowing reputation for producing some of the finest engineering companies in the UK as well as developing new talent in the technically advanced fields that are so crucial to industries such as marine, aerospace, defence, medical devices as well as motorsport. "The competition therefore to win this award was always going to be fierce making Good Fabrications an extremely deserving winner."
*The term HPTM is defined as anything from software design to advanced engineering and everything in between including electronics, CAD, manufacturing, R&D and the professional service companies that support these activities in sectors such as aerospace, medical devices, defence, marine and motorsport.
