Protool installs its first vending machine

Protool has been serving Goodman Precision Engineering’s tooling needs for two years. The latest venture between the two companies saw Protool successfully complete its first vending machine installation at Goodman’s Milton Keynes-based facility.

Owner, Mark Goodman, started Goodman Precision Engineering in January 2011, and to date has invested over £1 million on staff, materials and tooling solutions to produce precision components for his clients.

Currently employing 16 members of staff and mainly serving the motorsport and defence industries, Goodman is an ever-expanding business; continuously investing in both its equipment and people. New business is derived solely from customer recommendations – which demonstrates the quality of the work produced. Goodman’s clients include household names such as Williams GP, Mercedes AMG HPP and the Red Bull F1 team, many of who have been customers for several years.

“I can always find the tooling I need in Protools’ extensive catalogue,” Mr Goodman enthused. “The high product quality, choice of grades, and the multi-buy discounts that we enjoy remove the need for Protools having to quote on each order.

“In choosing Protool’s vending machine, we can now can access a variety of tooling, all in one place, making it simple for me to quote and complete jobs for our clients.”
