Roger Woolman and Geoff Martin established the electronic engineering firm Martin-Woolman in a small garage in St Albans in 1971. This is where they made their first product – their own invention of a portable lightbox for use by photographers and advertising agencies and electronic controllers for large industrial fans and air conditioning units. In the early 1980s the business quickly developed and then moved to an executive park across the road. This is where they employed staff for the first time – two of which are still with us today! 

Then, in 1989 the business was relocated to larger premises in Welwyn Garden City, where we remain to this day. This is where Martin-Woolman branched out into sub-contracting for large companies around the area.

Now we provide contract manufacturing for our customers not only here in the U.K but also in the U.S
