The company stocks a range of steels at its site at Sowerby Bridge and delivers door-to-door throughout the North on a daily basis, supplying engineering companies, fabricators, local authorities and the building industry.
David Shoesmith, managing director, said that the investment encompasses a new delivery vehicle, taking the total number to 12, plus a fork lift truck and associated racking for the warehouse.
He said: “We’ve seen a steady increase in our output over the last three years and we decided on the back of improved economic figures for the country as well as feedback from our own customers that it looks as though manufacturing is on a steady rise and we felt we needed to invest at this point to take advantage in the coming years.”
Pulman Steel, which employs 65 full-time staff and has an annual turnover of around £10m, can trace its history back to 1830. As well as steel stockholding, it offers sawing and profiling services. The company sources steel from all over the world, mainly via British companies.
