About the employer

Sherwood started life when four founding members from the industry came together to start a stainless steel supply and processing business in 1990. After outgrowing early sites, the business grew to become home to 60,000 sq ft site accommodating stainless steel and aluminium production lines that became hard for others to match. As customer demand matured, the team added a range of machining, cutting, drilling and punching services – again specifically to be able to meet customer need and keep copycat competitors at arm’s length. More recently, Sherwood added additional saws, presses and sub assembly lines, before investing in the first of several long length machining lines. Whilst the flat rolled market has remained important to Sherwood, it is the growth in the aluminium extrusion market that has helped push the company to greater heights.
