Back and Better Event

Back and Better Event

The day was about fun and mingling, but more importantly it was about saying a huge thank you to our friends, family, suppliers and customers who assisted us. You have shown the team at Pulmans your friendship and support since the Boxing Day Floods of 2015 which affected Yorkshire and many other areas.

That is now behind us and in addition to saying thank you, we wanted to show off our new production machinery!

The day consisted of food, drinks, a fantastic car racing competition and most importantly, an excellent guided tour of the works. Our new saws, plasma cutting machines and oxy propane machines were operational throughout the day and hopefully gave an insight in to our operations. The team in the works took great pride at welcoming people into their domain and demonstrating our capabilities.

Speeches were made by David Shoesmith and Holly Lynch MP. David, who luckily is not a man for long speeches, kept it short but sincere, thanking people for their help and loyalty (view the video here). David’s speech was followed by a few words from Holly Lynch MP who has been a great advocate in helping businesses after the flood and pressing the Environmental Agency to create better defences for the future.

We may have had a dark start to the year but the future is looking bright and the Pulman’s team is more enthusiastic than ever.

Congratulations go to Stuart Taylor of Centa Transmissions who had the fastest lap time on the Racing Bug circuit and has been awarded the winners trophy.

Appeal for more support in wake of floods

Chancellor George Osborne has been widely criticised for not publicly supporting the 2,000 plus businesses that were affected by the Boxing Day floods. He has also been accused of jeopardising Britain’s crumbling flood defences over the past five years by prioritising cuts to the deficit. David Shoesmith, Managing Director of Pulman Steel, said: “I want to know what the Government is going to do about the rivers in this valley and the flood defences. He added: “It would be nice at some point if George Osbourne acknowledged what has happened to us.” In April 2015, Chancellor George Osborne visited Pulmans Steel in Sowerby Bridge to talk about his “long term economic plan for our country and for Yorkshire”. The Labour MP for Halifax, Holly Lynch has written to the Chancellor inviting him on a return visit to Pulman Steel to discuss how its situation has changed and what could be done to support it as a key player in our local economy. You can view Hollys speech here bit.ly/1nCOvi2. This is the first time it has been flooded in its 31 years at the site. Much of the company’s warehouse and office space was damaged as well as a number of wagons, machinery and 80 percent of its stock was written off. Chris Horner, finance director, said: “We are still open for business. We built our business on service and our sales team is trying to keep in touch with customers.” We await with great anticipation for a response from the government. We hope that the interest they have taken in the past will go a long way to assisting us and businesses of Calderdale in the future.

THE FLOODS HIT but we will not be beaten

Over the Christmas period we have been one of many businesses affected by the catastrophic floods that have hit Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Our warehouse and offices have been damaged to such an extent that business will be limited from Monday 4th 2016. Our commitment to communicate with and service both existing and potential customers does however remain the same.

The Pulman Steel team has, with the help of customers, staff, suppliers and the lovely volunteers of West Yorkshire already made a start on getting our production and supply back on track, but as we are sure you can appreciate it will take time.

You are our priority and we hope you will bear with us at this challenging time.

We will keep you informed on a regular basis but in the meantime we have supplied two numbers for you to contact with any questions.

We are sorry for any inconvenience and will where necessary work with you to provide alternative solutions to meet your needs.

Our facebook and twitter pages will also have additional updates to keep you up to date.
