About Us

Who are Goodfellow?

Backed by more than 70 years of facilitating product innovation, Goodfellow is a leading global supplier of metals, alloys, ceramics, glasses, polymers, compounds, composites and other research materials. Till now, these materials have been mainly used for their technical abilities, but beyond this, they offer a wealth of extraordinary textures and sensory outputs that are turning the design industry on its head. The company has an extensive range of 70,000 catalogue products in multiple forms available off the shelf, most subject to free delivery within 48 hours and with no minimum order quantities.

Goodfellow’s in-house team is comprised of fellow scientists and engineers with an extensive knowledge of materials and processing – through their technical expertise and a supporting range of specification tools, the team can help to find solutions to even the most challenging of research & design problems. All of our products are also underpinned by the ISO 9001 quality accreditation.

How can Materials Hub help with my project?

Materials Hub is an engaging digital platform for designers & artists to explore, evaluate and share materials information with fellow professionals, all in one place on the one-stop hub. Launched last year, the initial database was made up of around 100 materials. Including visuals such as photos and videos that illustrate each material’s characteristics, capacities and potential applications, the database has recently been expanded to cover more than 300 materials and provide an even more comprehensive source of knowledge. We will be continually adding to the database to ensure we provide you with new materials that can be utilised in your innovative design projects.

Features include

  • Textured photos so you can visualise every aspect of the material
  • Comprehensive knowledge of the materials
  • Applications
  • Forms
  • A Designer Spotlight showcasing an array of exciting projects from the industry
  • The ability to share & save your favourite materials
  • Access to the Goodfellow catalogue directly from materials pages
  • A comments section on each page to encourage discussions about the uses & applications of materials, as well as any questions
