John Winter

Working better together for your foundry success.

At John Winter we don’t ever want to lose sight of the fact that our business is to help your business to flourish through working smarter and better.

That’s not about selling you products, but by building the kind of relationship that you come to rely on. Experienced foundry experts, bringing you knowledge and expertise and high-quality, trusted products that perform consistently to help improve the way you work and the quality of what you produce.

That might sound easy, but like all good recipes you need all the right ingredients.

INGREDIENT 1: The expertise you need when you need it

One thing we’ve learnt in more than the half a century that John Winter has been in business, is that true expertise shines through every time.  People speaking your language, who understand the challenges you face every day and the intimate details of how our products can make a difference to your business.

Being founded in 1963 gives us no right to a successful business or loyal customers. We know the longevity of our customer relationships is a result of using our expertise to help customers like you to manufacture better and better. In that way you can cement your customer relationships and remain the partner they turn to and can rely on.

We’re proud of our team of foundry experts and the support team around them that brings many many years of experience to help our customers. That experience is the result of time spent client-side working in foundries and the expertise and experience that comes from many years’ service at John Winter.

But don’t be fooled into thinking that people that stay at John Winter are comfortable and coasting along, we’ve a culture and programme of consistent improvement in our knowledge and refinement of our products so that they deliver better and better results for customers like you.

There when you need us … wherever you are in the world

Of course we’re always available on the end of the phone – we’re always happy to hear from you and happy to provide you with the benefit of our expertise if you have a specific question or challenge. But more importantly we’re committed to being with you at your business when you need us.

Our team and global network of agents and distributors schedule regular visits with our customers and we continue to uncover opportunities for us to work better together. Through informed and intelligent discussions about your business, we understand the work you are undertaking and the challenges that occur as a consequence. Our experts speak your language and will explore and suggest ways that will overcome these challenges to deliver a better performance through improved or more consistent product quality, reduced waste or faster production.

But our expertise isn’t only available on our scheduled visits from your local team. Plenty of customers just like you have benefited from our senior product or R&D specialists jumping in the car or even getting on a plane and spending time in their business. Usually when they need us to help them overcome a significant production challenge.

INGREDIENT 2: Trusted products that deliver consistent production quality

Your business is most successful when it’s running effectively, delivering consistent product quality at consistent volumes. Production downtime through manufacturing quality issues or missing materials, costs money, which disappears from your bottom-line, never to be recovered.

At John Winter we understand two key truths in relation to the products we supply:

  1. They must consistently deliver the same results, time after time, batch after batch to give you the confidence that you can deliver for your customers
  2. CHANGE = RISK. Making a change to the way you currently manufacture can involve risk. It can also involve testing and maybe quality assurance too. Isn’t that enough to discourage fixing what’s not broken? At John Winter we understand this reality, and against that we still make informed product recommendations. We make them where we are confident there is a significant upside to you and your business

That’s why our portfolio of products have been carefully chosen by our experienced team to make sure they won’t let you down. With a mix of products we manufacture ourselves in the UK and North America and others that we either chose or are approached to distribute because of our expertise, John Winter’s foundry products will deliver consistent performance day after day, batch after batch.

Already distributing our products to more than 40 countries, and with local agents and distributors speaking your language, as well as a team that travels the globe, no matter where you are in the world you can have the confidence that comes with choosing John Winter products.

Green, environmentally friendly, sustainable … we’ve heard it all before

We can’t get away from it – sustainability, emissions, environmentally friendly, green – from cars to drinking straws the environmental juggernaut rolls on and on. And rightly so, we believe.

Being environmentally aware doesn’t have to be at odds with effective and profitable production. At John Winter we are continually looking to add products to our portfolio that don’t compromise quality, consistency or performance but that are:

  • Environmentally friendly – they reduce or eliminate the harm caused to the environment by the waste products or emissions that result from manufacturing processes.
  • Sustainable – products that meet current and future legislation enabling your business to plan further into the future.
  • Safer – products that reduce the amount of unpleasant or potentially harmful emissions that your team are exposed to whilst undertaking your manufacturing operations.

INGREDIENT 3: Delivering for you so you can deliver for them

Every business talks about the quality of their customer service, but few in our sector examine it in as much detail as we or work as hard as we do to make sure we deliver for you time and time again. Just another example of how we are working better together.

Once again our experienced team have a big part to play in making sure that John Winter delivers for you, so that you can deliver for your customers. With a consistent team, many who have been with us for more than 10 years, our customers benefit from people they know and they trust.

Internally, team values of commitment and support, being upfront and saying it as we see it, all contribute to our customers valuing the reliable and consistent relationship they get from John Winter.

We know that by combining that commitment with a comprehensive range of high quality, trusted products, available from stock, that we are fit and ready to deliver for you so you can deliver for your customers.

If we can make it happen, we will.

If you need our advice, we’ll make ourselves available as soon as we can.

If you need a supplier you can trust, make us your first choice.

INGREDIENT 4: We make our own decisions

John Winter is a privately owned business and after more than half a century is still going from strength to strength. In a world of multi-national conglomerates and PLCs, it might be seen that a privately owned business must be a small inconsequential operation. Not so John Winter. With customers in more than 40 countries and a global supply network we are truly world citizens.

Private ownership also brings with it the ability to make our own decisions and to build and maintain the culture that has made John Winter the success it is.

Not beholden to global PLC masters or the short-termism that venture capitalist investment can bring, we make the decisions that are right for the future long-term prosperity of our business. Central to that is the quality of our customer interactions, building the right product portfolio and building enduring business relationships.

Decisions about how we do that are made by those who work with and know our customers, not by a faceless manager distant from the realities of working in a foundry and delivering for customers again and again.

A recipe that works – to help you have a more profitable and more sustainable business that delivers for your customers, day after day, week after week, year after year.
