Andrews Sykes Group relocates to new depot with purpose built testing facilities
London (PRWEB UK) 15 November 2012
Following a 12 month planning and investment process, Andrews Sykes Group, the AIM listed specialist HVAC and pump hire specialist, has officially opened its newly refurbished premises and depot this week. Although less than half a mile away from the previous site at Gallions Road in Charlton, the move to Peninsular Park is part of the company’s ambitious expansion plans: the new 22,500 sq ft facility has almost double the capacity of the previous premises. This increased space gives Andrews Sykes the capability to expand the fleet size to meet customer demand and has other efficiencies such as the amalgamation of the air conditioning hire team under one roof.
Andrews Sykes have lead the way in service for the hire industry for many years with innovations such as a true 24/7 telephone answering service and on-site servicing of equipment to prevent breakdowns. The new depot will allow a more efficient turnaround of equipment, making it available for hire faster than ever, and the range of stock held in one location will improve the speed of response to the London area and to other depots when they need to draw on the Charlton stock.
Official opening event
Having been the official supplier of air conditioning to the Olympic and Paralympic Games and as the shirt sponsor for Charlton Athletic FC, Andrews Sykes’ official opening was attended by Olympic silver medal winner Gemma Gibbons and also Chris Powell, manager of last season’s League One winning side. The behind-the-scenes tour on the 25 October 2012, enabled customers to get a feel for the day-to-day operation of the business, as well as enjoy a networking lunch at The Valley, home of Charlton Athletic. The day concluded with an excellent insight into the demands of being a high profile sports personality, courtesy of Gemma and Chris who shared their experiences with those attending.
Paul Wood, Managing Director at Andrews Sykes said: “Every effort has been made to build in the latest facilities to meet the current and future needs of the business, whilst having regard to our environmental impact. We’re all excited about the new depot but equally pleased that the move is only just down the road - Charlton has been the home of one or more parts of our business for over 80 years.”
