This winning team decided to set up a business together to take advantage of some pretty big gaps in the market for everything from garden landscaping to building-site ground works, and our success speaks for itself.
Since its early days the Coombe & Sharpe business has grown successfully and has broadened out into other areas. Today we are a multi stranded company that is always professional, taking pride in our workmanship. We employ a dedicated team who are well trained and operate safely. Our focus on training our workforce and expanding each individual’s skills-set ensure that together we can adapt to changes in the industry and bring new skills required onboard quickly.
ERDF Funding – Stages 1, 2 and 3
In 2018, we were pleased to be awarded a grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. allow us to improve the storage of materials and recycling materials in the yard and enable us to create an improved workshop for the Coombe & Sharpe team to make fencing panels and gates, all of which will permit us to employ additional staff.
As of December, stage 1 of this funding has been delivered and a fleet of new machinery for the yard has arrived. Alan and Paul are, we gather, like kids in the sweetshop with all the new toys!
Update 2020: Stage 2 and 3 of the project are now complete. The upgrades to the workshop are finished and we have taken possession of the new woodworking equipment which will enable us to grow our business further.
