Goodridge - Winners Again!
Goodridge USA recently received the prestigious Award of Excellence at Polaris Industries. The award is given to only a handful of suppliers - those who meet Polaris’s stringent requirements on Quality, Cost, Delivery and Flexibility. This is the first time Goodridge USA has won this award since 2007, when they won it three years in a row (2005-2007). It now puts Goodridge among the Top 10 suppliers out of over 500 globally. Well done to all contributing employees from Quality, Operations, Production Planning, Sales, Accounting and Engineering.
Goodridge also picked up a supplier award at Arctic Cat for Quality and Delivery in 2013. For the 12 months through July, Goodridge’s On-Time Delivery was 99.9% and PPM (Parts Per Million Defects) was 78. Finally Goodridge new product launch G-Flex Hose & Fittings picked up a SEMA product award. This award is given to innovative new products that are identified with the potential to succeed in International Markets. In 2011 Goodridge won the same award for its G-Max product range.
Press Release – Silverstone Announcement
As of April 2nd 2014, Goodridge will close our Silverstone facility.
This is no reflection upon our recent announcement to engage more and improve our motorsport business within Europe.
We have seen our business grow and the demands of our customers have become more specialised and focused to produce complete engineering assemblies, not just hose and fittings.
The rationale to focus on engineered products: where we have the equipment and machines to bend alloy or stainless hard-line; and braze or weld assemblies, in our Exeter facility, allows us a far more efficient delivery to our customers.
The Goodridge mobile van is active and can be in a customer’s premises to help with installation support. That combined with a large network of distributors who can assemble products, acts as a further assistance to our customers.
We have plans to instruct a ‘G’ Tech centre within 20 miles of Silverstone to add flexibility required within this market. This information will be released in the near future.
In truth the discussion and subsequent decision about our Silverstone facility was instigated by our customers, and as a customer focused organisation, we do believe in listening to the market leaders that we provide our products and services too.
Thank you to our customers for their ongoing support and understanding while we rehouse equipment, stock and other assets to the headquarters at Exeter.
If you require any further information, please contact your Account Manager or email: - firstname.lastname@example.org.

Another innovation from Goodridge - Glow in the dark hoses.Goodridge have been working with their suppliers to continue their innovation within the after market sector, and following on from the Gold Shadow kits we are pleased to offer a new kit that has glow in the dark hose and inserts. This will not only increase visibility of your motorcycle during the long dark winter days but also offer a different and unique look to your bike.
During the day the hose looks like a standard stainless braided hose with
a clear cover to protect it from dirt and wear but come night , your hose
will glow just like the hands on your watch!
Kits are now available from your Goodridge stockist K300 Ltd. from £31.20 per line.

What happened to goodridge.co.uk ?
goodridge.co.uk was originally registered and owned by a property agent called Godridge, it was then sold to K300 Ltd. and we then built a website and marketed the domain name until it became the highest ranking website for Goodridge products.
Some years later the domain name was given to Goodridge Ltd. and aliased to their own domain name goodridge.net.
