News: Business growth from Acorn


Rotherham-based Acorn Industrial Services Ltd is investing in new products and warehouse space that will make them one of the largest power transmission distributors in the country.

The Masborough firm has been awarded "Master Distributorship" status by industrial belt manufacturer Goodyear Engineered Products, making them the only master distributor for the whole of the UK and Ireland.

Acorn's commitment to the new distributorship has been demonstrated with an initial £500,000 investment in Goodyear Engineered Products, to be contained in a new 6,000 sq ft belt warehouse at their current premises.

The company acquired and demolished the old Butchers Arms pub on Midland Road and submitted plans for the extended warehouse last month.

Des Spillings, sales director for Acorn Industrial Services Ltd, said: "We are tremendously proud to be chosen by Goodyear Engineered Products and consider the appointment a great accolade. This is a fantastic opportunity for both Acorn and our customers and it will also create much needed jobs in the region."

As well as stocking over 40,000 products, Acorn specialise in sourcing bearings, power transmission products, seals and ancillary products. They currently employ over 80 people at their Rotherham headquarters and branch network throughout the country.
