About JWS


JWS are an Electronics Design & Manufacturing company specialising in Access Control, Door Entry & Automatic Door Equipment supplying primarily to the Installing Trade. Our products may be seen in everyday use on thousands of UK High Streets, banks, schools, hospitals and commercial premises.

The company can be traced back to 1977 when the principal began designing electronic digital locks. In 1984 Macrosoft UK Ltd. headed by John Wainwright and Peter Cavaney was formed in Bath and began designing card and proximity systems. 'Europlex Technologies' bought Macrosoft UK Ltd. in 1991 and after completing contractual conditions it was possible to restart as 'John Wainwright Systems Ltd' (JWS) in January 1995. The original company ethos remains true to this day: "To Supply and Support great products".

JWS are now based in Westfield Industrial Estate, Radstock, near Bath. We operate an open door policy and encourage the public as well as Trade customers to visit our showroom and grab a coffee on us!
