This year, we at Sheridan Fabrications Ltd are celebrating our 25th Anniversary of supplying luxury worksurfaces to the UK.
We’ve decided to mark this milestone by concentrating on what us important to us, and what matters to our customers. Our chosen charity for the year is the Prince of Wales Hospice, to whom we have pledged a significant donation later in the year. We’ve also made it our mission to connect more with our end users, by first actively encouraging feedback, and now, with the launch of our first ever Sheridan Photo Competition where we’re giving owners of Sheridan Worktops the chance to win a Google Nest Hub Max, or an Amazon Echo Show 10.
In 1996, Sheridan MD, John Blackburn and a handful of staff were operating from a single lock-up unit in the shadow of Bradford City’s Valley Parade. Starting work initially on commercial contracts, we started working with the retail sector and quickly expanded to outgrow not just the single lockup, but the four units adjacent.
By 1998 we had moved to a much larger facility in Ouzlewell Green. This new, much larger base of operations allowed us to improve our product portfolio, expanding from Corian and Zodiaq Quartz, to include Solid Wood and eventually Granite, which was produced by a granite factory in Tebay that we acquired.
In 2004, we moved to our current premises at Sheridan House in Normanton. From this new vantage point we had the benefit of a skilled local workforce, excellent transport links, and the potential for further expansion. After a £3million investment to move our operations, we were able to integrate and centralise our manufacturing capabilities.
Over the last 15 years we have continued to grow, working with the biggest names in UK kitchen retail to secure our position as the UK’s market leader. Our scale and expertise allowed us to develop and refine the Apollo range of luxury worksurfaces, spanning the most up-to-date trends and materials, while launching innovative new products not previously available.
Today, as the Britain’s largest luxury worktop manufacturer, we fit thousands of worksurfaces every month to UK households and commercial contracts, with the fastest lead times available. We coordinate multiple teams of laser templaters and fitters across the UK, supported by our accredited distribution network, while supplying and competing with the most renowned brands available.
Thank you to all the customers, retail partners and staff who made this milestone possible!
