£500,000 investment for engineering businesses

Ray Fletcher

Sheffield-based national crane service provider Street Cranexpress and electrical control and automation products distributor BXH are moving into a new era.

The companies – part of the SCE Industries group – have invested more than half a million pounds in expanded and modernised offices including a modern training centre, staff gym and workshop improvements, at Tyler Street, Wincobank.

The SCE Industries group has emerged following changes earlier this year, when SCX Special Projects – the company which designed the Centre Court and Number One Court at Wimbledon and designed and installed the retractable pitch at Tottenham Hotspurs’ new stadium – was acquired by Elysian Capital.

At the helm of the 100 plus strong team is chairman Simon Eastwood, managing director Ray Fletcher, operations director James Eastwood and Mick South, BXH director.

Fletcher said: “This is a very exciting time for us. The investment in the building and our staff means we now have significantly larger and better equipped premises with the essential resource levels to match.

“As we emerge from Covid-19, we are strongly placed with our range of services and products to keep production lines moving across the UK in many sectors, from heavy industry to energy providers; from utilities to food distribution.

“Recent successes have seen customers impressed that we now have all elements of our business in one place, working together to deliver the highest levels of customer service.”
