From the 25th August 2021 Simm Engineering Group will be known as Pennine Pneumatics Services Ltd in a move aiming to ease customer confusion and enhance the company’s presence across the North of England.
Pennine Pneumatic Services Ltd (PPS) acquired Simm Engineering Group in March 2015. Since then, the South Yorkshire branch has continued under its own name, but working as a division of PPS. Changing the name now was sparked by feedback from customers seeking clarity on the different company names.
The support customers receive from the South Yorkshire branch will remain the same – the team in Sheffield is not changing. Their relocation in 2020 put them in a prime position to provide key support to manufacturers and compressed air users across the region. South Yorkshire customers will already be used to dealing with the PPS West Yorkshire head office for accounts, installation and ducting.
“Up until now we have not needed to change the name of Simm Engineering Group, they worked as a division of PPS – but we only had two branches. In this year alone we have doubled to four branches and so the time is right for the change to bring greater consistency and ease of recognition across the business.
“It is a credit to our Sheffield based team that we are able to do this, the service and support they provide to customers is second to none. I know they are ready for the change and fully support what we are trying to achieve with this rebrand.
“I firmly believe that local presence from a team you can trust is the key to delivering good service – that is something that won’t change in our business” Ian Harrison, Managing Director, PPS
