A group driven by effective investment, leadership and management
The Goodfish Group was set up in September 2010 to provide a (sub-) contract manufacturing service for the point of sale (POS) industry.
It started with the acquisition of an injection-moulding and tool-making business in Cannock which, to this day, retains the head office of the group. As things turned out, the Cannock business (Goodfish Ltd) made its name in serving the automotive industry, as a number of Tier 1 businesses found they could rely on Goodfish Ltd to supply increasingly sophisticated mouldings at a competitive price.
This gave Goodfish the head of steam it needed to go on the acquisition trail, starting with the acquisition in January 2015 of Powell and Harber, another automotive and also medical mouldings supplier in Worcester. Powell & Harber remains a key part of the Group to this day, although its toolroom no longer makes tools for external customers.
Expansion into Central and Eastern Europe
In April 2017, Goodfish went on to acquire the injection-moulding and vacuum-forming activities of DCI-Artform. In 2018 Goodfish set up Goodfish Slovakia s.r.o. in Bratislava to prepare the way for expansion into Central & Eastern Europe. This formed a beach head for its Brexit hedging strategy.
In January 2020, Goodfish made its largest acquisition to-date, acquiring the injection-moulding, tool-making and extrusion activities of Honeywell in St Asaph, Denbighshire, North Wales. This business now operates under the name Goodfish North West Ltd and provides significant expansion opportunities for the Group on its 12-acre freehold site with 160,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing and assembly facilities.
