Introducing James White Engineering

James White Engineering (JWE) was founded in Reading in 1953, having previously been a coach company. We diversified into engineering due to the shortage of parts to maintain our coaches following the Second World War. The only way to get these parts was to make them in-house! Word got around about our engineering capabilities and a business was born.
