Kenneth Cooke visit manufacturers from every area of South Yorkshire
Within the Sheffield City Region there are hundreds of manufacturing companies working in specialist fields, supplying services or making products for sale around the world. And, recently, the Master Cutler, Ken Cooke, visited one such company based in the Barnsley area, Naylor Industries.
This Made in Sheffield company has been in existence since 1890 but, with the guidance of CEO Edward Naylor and his team, they have developed into a 21st century company, manufacturing a full range of specialist building products from clay drainage pipes to plastic and concrete pipes with diversification into hugely popular Yorkshire plant pots which sell in their thousands.
Naylor’s has contracts as far afield as the Middle and Far East and has built up a reputation for quality and service.
The Master Cutler said: “Naylor Industries is a fine example of an established company re-inventing itself to become a market leader through innovation. They market their products around the world and continue to invest in equipment and personnel, including apprentices.”
Naylor’s is a supporter of the Company of Cutlers’ Better Workers/ Better Learners programme in Barnsley and is an important part of Barnsley’s continuing regeneration.
