Thomas A Ashton Ltd, trading as the Ashton Group, celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. It began life in 1866 as Thomas A. Ashton trundled his handcart through the cobbled streets of Sheffield and district delivering wares, mainly paraffin.

The company grew as it supplied the booming industrial sector from its Norfolk Street premises and it became a household name. By 1966 Ashtons was one of the largest stockists of hydraulic seals in the country, carrying millions of seals in many ranges.

In 1999 Ashton Seals relocated from Sheffield to a modern purpose-built site at Cortonwood Business Park in the Dearne Valley where three subsidiaries of the group now employ around 80 staff.
