Andrews Sykes take silver in 7-a-side football tournament

On Sunday 22nd May, a squad of eight Andrews Sykes employees took part in the annual Executive Box holder football tournament held at The Valley. The team had always been eliminated at the knock-out stage in previous years, but there was widespread hope that things would be different in 2016!

A 2-1 victory against Greenwich Inc in the opening group game virtually sealed semi-final qualification after the same team could only draw against Hadlow College. A narrow loss at the hands of Hadlow therefore proved irrelevant but meant Andrews Sykes would face the much-fancied Royal Borough of Greenwich in the penultimate round.

Andrews Air Conditioning support fundraising Rixton gig in London

Andrews Air Conditioning were delighted to sponsor the Charlton Athletic Community Trust’s charity gig for a second successive year– this time headlined by Manchester pop rock group Rixton. The event was staged in Greenwich and attended by a near sell-out crowd, as thousands flocked to the Indigo at the O2 in spite of city-wide Tube strikes.

Popular acts Zuriel and Autumn Sharif preceded the main act before Rixton were introduced by radio presenter Dave Berry.

The lucky winners of our various competitions had the chance to meet the musicians as well as a number of Charlton players who also turned up on the night. All were very happy to mingle with guests and pose for photographs in the VIP lounge – with our paper fans once again getting in on the act!

London Build exhibition proves successful for Sykes Pumps

Sykes Pumps were delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit at the London Build exhibition at the O2 Arena, Greenwich. Our largest depot is situated just a few hundred yards up the road in Charlton and acts as a centre point from which we serve all customers based in and around the capital.

The trade show enabled us to connect with some of the industry’s big players across the two days, and this introduction has already paved the way for a number of enquiries and potential projects.

We used the event to preview our new general purpose pump – the Minivac Eco – and this is set to be officially launched before the end of the summer. It was the presence of a vintage unit, though, that really captured the imagination of those who visited our stand.
