Historic milestone for Greenwood Magnetics

20 February is a significant date for Greenwood Magnetics.

On this day in 1948, less than 3 years after the end of World War 2, the company was founded as H S Greenwood and Sons Limited.

The company ran under this name until 2005 when it was changed to Greenwood Magnetics Limited in order to better reflect the activities of the business.

The original Certificate of Incorporation
– now 70 years old.

Over the past 70 years, the company has evolved significantly, building an unrivalled expertise in industrial magnetic separation with new and innovative bespoke products being developed and launched regularly as the needs of customers develop.

We look forward to a long and productive future over the next 70 years!

Quality Approval for Greenwood

As part of an ongoing commitment to demonstrating the highest quality products and service, we are pleased to announce that our quality systems have been audited by Approachable Certification Ltd and awarded ISO9001-2015 accreditation.

The certification covers the manufacture and supply of magnetic separators and bespoke magnetic assemblies.

Despite this being the first time we have applied for ISO 9001-2015 accreditation, we secured the certification immediately, on the first audit, with zero non-conformances.

Greenwood Magnetics’ Managing Director, Jeremy Greenwood explains:

I am extremely proud of the dedication our team has shown enabling us to achieve this prestigious standard with flying colours. Given the stringent requirements for material traceability in the food and pharmaceuticals sectors, we believed it was of the utmost importance to attain the certification.  This award testifies to our focus on maintaining our position as a leading company in the field of magnetic separators and delivering the highest quality products and services to our customers.
