Engineering alive and well in Sheffield!

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently visited Sheffield engineering company Davy Markham to find out how their business is developing during these challenging economic times. She met John Watson, and Pete Kerfoot, who explained that the company design and manufacture components for many different industries, including mining, construction and power.

They have also developed key apparatus for moving bridges, including the world famous Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the Great Wharf Road Tilting Bridge in London. Davy Markham currently exports around 85% of what they manufacture. They employ around 220 full time staff and are based on a 20 acre site at Darnall, Sheffield.

Meg said:

“It’s great to see that engineering is alive and well in Sheffield. I was fascinated to learn about the range of engineering components that Davy Markham design and manufacture, which are exported around the world. I was also pleased to hear that the company are also investing in the next generation of local engineers, with an in-house apprenticeships scheme.”
