Luxury worktop manufacturer Sheridan Fabrications is celebrating 20 years of success.

The Normanton firm will be marking the milestone by hosting a charity fun day to raise funds for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice later this year, as well as by putting on a number of promotions for its customers.

Sheridan - Europe’s largest manufacturer and supplier of bespoke luxury worktops - was launched in 1996 with two employees in a small factory in Bradford.

It now employs around 200 people at its 130,000 sq ft site on Don Pedro Avenue and has a turnover of around £20m.

Managing director John Blackburn said: “There’s no doubt the value of the market has fallen thanks mainly to the slowdown in housebuilding and home renovation projects in recent times. But sales have picked up again, helped a lot by the trend towards more open plan kitchen-diner spaces and the importance of design and higher-quality finishes particularly for worktops.

“We’re confident we’ll see double digit growth next year, particularly in bespoke worktops as granite and quartz are becoming much more competitively priced. It’s a great time to be celebrating this milestone, and we’ve lots planned to help our fantastic team and our customers share in our success.”
