Recent expansion in PPS Sheffield helps to reduce lead times for our customers

With compressed air making up approximately 70% of all energy in manufacturing, our customers trust us for a reliable supply of compressed air and pneumatics parts. Our recent expansion of Pennine Pneumatic Services Ltd Sheffield branch (PPS Sheffield) will help us source parts faster, and better service our customers.

The branch has undergone renovations, with a new 8500 sq ft mezzanine being added. This creates more space for our large stock, including air compressors, compressor spares and pneumatic parts – items that have recently seen a large increase in lead times due to global supply issues.

 “Manufacturers in South Yorkshire have been feeling the pain of long lead times. The addition of the mezzanine floor and 1.2 tonne lift has enabled us to hold a massive amount of stock that is central, and crucial to our operation and client network – helping us to alleviate some of that pain.

“Having the stock here in South Yorkshire, ready to ship means manufacturers can hire or buy a compressor quickly should the worst happen, and they have a system failure. It also means we have the right compressor spares available for our engineers to be able to make first time fixes on site and maintain the correct service intervals on machines. 

“Response, customer uptime and energy efficiency are paramount to the PPS ethos, which is why we have made this significant investment in the new mezzanine. As a distributor for market leading brands including Atlas Copco, we are proud to carry stock of energy efficient products” Alan Kerr, General Manager PPS Sheffield.

The expansion follows other major transformation, with our South Yorkshire branch moving to the new site in Dinnington in the summer of 2020.  The site’s convenient location, situated just off the M1 and M18, makes it ideally placed for customers in the South Yorkshire area, as well as being centrally located to the other four PPS branches.

Alan added: “At PPS we do not stand still, we are always looking to make improvements. Moving into our new Sheffield premises back in 2020 was a massive step for PPS but we knew it was exactly the right thing to do in, let’s be honest, quite uncertain times through the Covid peak. We knew, however, that this was just the start of our venture to develop and grow our infrastructure to better support our customers across South Yorkshire and beyond.”
