About Us

Transworld Engineering Ltd. supplies manufacturing solutions through the sale of high quality machinery and engineering support for spring makers and end users in the UK and European market, helping manufacturers produce parts in-house.

Mr. Philip Barrett founded Transworld in 2009 after a period of research and travel in Dongguan China, where he developed partnerships with manufacturers and finally agreed to begin importing new, competitively priced Spring Coiling machinery from KCMCO Precision. Mr. Barrett remains as Managing Director of Transworld Engineering Ltd.

Based in Birmingham with a small but highly skilled team, we work to ensure the machines we supply are of top quality, without charging over the odds. Once a machine is sold, we continue to provide manufacturers with expert engineering support and after-sales care.
