How Can We Help


The first step is understanding and identifying the key issues you face and how we can help develop a system to solve these. The project specifications are tailor-made to your requirements and wishes.


Next we engineer the perfect bespoke solution to your problem. Offering multiple configurations to suit your entire organisation from management to the end user who may be operating your system.


Once developed we deliver your intuitive, professional bespoke control system or machinery to meet your deadlines. With continued support and advice throughout commissioning and into its day-to-day running.


What People Say

We’ve been involved with JWA for a number of years now, from acquiring new recycling machinery to using their expertise to engineer a complete wash-line using their Siemens PLC control system. We are delighted with the work they have done for us, not just the results of the control system which has allowed us to increase throughput substantially but also the continued support offered by their engineers whenever we need them.

Jason Hall, Group Engineering Manager – Jayplas

At AV we like to push new technology wherever possible and enjoy the challenge of new applications. Our collaboration with John Wood & Associates is well matched as we have a similar approach to engineering and unfortunately for the staff we have a similar sense of humour too.
