Andrews Heat for Hire stops cast stone manufacturers from becoming stone cold!

As a sustainability conscious company, we’re pledging to strengthen our efforts to reduce our waste production in 2023. So it was rather fitting that one of our first projects in the new year involved assisting another organisation to fulfil the same commitment.

In some industries, low temperatures are not conducive to maximising output and this can, in itself, also lead to materials being wasted or damaged. Many of our clients manufacture products or store raw materials that need to be maintained at a certain temperature to preserve their condition and eliminate the risk of items being destroyed or discarded.

Andrews Sykes donates to army veteran charity

To start the year off on a positive note, we have continued to nurture our ongoing relationship with the Aaron Lewis Foundation. In late 2022, we pledged to make a Christmas donation of £5,000 and are very proud to support this wonderful initiative.

The Aaron Lewis foundation was set up in 2010 in memory of Aaron Lewis, who was tragically killed at the age of 26 while on an operation in Afghanistan. The charity initially began as a small forum for friends and family raise funds in Aaron’s memory. With unity and teamwork at its core, the charity grew rapidly into the principle funding source for the Commando Gunner Memorial in Plymouth. With funds still being donated after the memorial was completed, it became viable to create an all-volunteer charity which attained charitable status in 2013.

Although we didn’t have a choice in the weather, our loyal customers chose us to provide temporary heating units. We’ve always made it our target to provide a high level of service and deliver during sleet, snow, or shine, and that’s exactly what we did!
