After returning to Cornwall from the Gold Mines of South Africa in 1914, Stephen John Andrew purchased a small business in Redruth and established SJ Andrew & Sons, selling used and new steel primarily to the local mining Industry.
The business has remained in the family and grown over the years, significantly with major investment & expansion in the late 80ís, and again in early 2011 with the doubling in size of the main steel store.
Still on its original site at South Turnpike in Redruth the business has sales counters, storage and workshop facilities covering 34,000 sq feet, and delivers throughout Cornwall with its fleet of three lorries and two vans.
Holding approximately 500 tonnes of steel, a comprehensive range of Industrial products, being ISO 9001 registered and part of the Troy Buying Group, SJ Andrew & Sons is well placed to provide a fast, friendly & reliable service to customers old & new.
4 years on from the centenary celebrations the business continues to grow and evolve. The last two years have seen 3 senior managers retire and this year the business has suffered the sad loss of two semi-retired Directors in Philip & Peter Andrew who both passed away unexpectedly from ill health. Despite this their legacy lives on and the Staff and Directors look forward to 2019.
