‘Sheffield Famous’ businesses we highly recommend
Sheffield has a wealth of great local businesses, and we try to work with our fellow Sheffield businesses wherever and whenever we can. Supporting local and supporting Sheffield matters to us.
This week, we wanted to showcase three Sheffield famous companies that we work with or use in some capacity, which we have built up a strong relationship with and find are a pleasure to work with.
Pinders began life as a family-run business back in 1939 as a ‘technical drawing’ company. The company, set up by Arthur Pinder, actually started in Doncaster, but Arthur soon realised the opportunity of a City such as Sheffield and relocated his business and family here.
Today, Pinders is the place you go in Sheffield for all things digital print, display and signage. We often use Pinders when we are redecorating or renovating a property and want to add something special to the property, such as photography or an eye-catching print.
In our office, on St Mary’s Road, we showcase many images of our developments and iconic locations in and around Sheffield. All printing comes from the Pinders’ print shop just up the road, which is actually less than 500 metres from us.
Here is a timeline of Pinders since 1939! https://thinkpinders.com/about-us/
Much of the work we do on our properties may go unseen and isn’t particularly glamourous, but it is essential to ensure our homes are safe and maintained to a high quality. For most of our general maintenance needs we use a local business called Sheffix. Sheffix is located on Shoreham Street, where you will find some of our student homes. That’s pretty local!
Chris, our maintenance manager, who some of you may know, is a regular here for general maintenance, often purchasing bits such as replacement door parts, screws, sealants. All the exciting stuff that makes a home!
Again, Sheffix are a great local business we are proud to work with.
Fletchers Waste Management
Fletchers Waste Management are really popular in Sheffield and rightly so. If anyone hires a skip in Sheffield there is a good chance that it might be from Fletchers.
Fletchers have a big emphasis on sustainability and the environment, and it’s important that the companies we choose to work with take this seriously, as it’s important to us too.
When many of our students move out of their homes after a few years of study, they’ve often amassed a lot of ‘stuff’, which isn’t reasonable to move around again, so we encourage our tenants to give Fletchers a call if needed.
Waste Management is probably even less glamorous than general maintenance, but again essential, in the ecosystem of making everything work, in our homes and the world at large.
Pinders, Sheffix and Fletchers Waste Management are three local Sheffield companies we highly recommend. Are there any Sheffield local businesses you would highly recommend too?
