Mayor given tour of new premises for thriving Barnsley-based business

The Mayor of Barnsley, Councillor James Michael Stowe, was shown around the new head office of SCC Air Compressors UK in Oxspring earlier today following support from Enterprising Barnsley to help the company expand into new premises.

SCC is a German industrial compressed air machinery manufacturer which was founded in Stuttgart in 2016 before beginning UK operations in 2018. At the time, they had just one member of staff who worked from home while stock was held in a small storage unit in Hillsborough.

The business has found success and continued to grow; it now has three local employees with the hope of adding to its workforce soon.

Working from a dedicated premises at Marrtree Business Park in Oxspring since 2020, the company signed a lease for their new home at the same business park in October 2023, which has since been transformed into a new head office for the UK branch of the business with the help of Enterprising Barnsley.

Councillor Robin Franklin, Cabinet spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: "It's fantastic news that SCC Air Compressors have decided to have the head office for their UK operations in Barnsley.

"They add to the already diverse portfolio of businesses based in the borough and demonstrate that Barnsley is a place where any business can thrive.

"We're proud that our award-winning Enterprising Barnsley team have played a part in developing this project for SCC and wish them all the very best for the future."

Nigel Palmer, Managing Director for SCC Air Compressors UK, said "The visit of the Mayor today is a very proud moment for SCC. It's a huge highlight for us and we feel very honoured that the Mayor took the time to come and visit us and see what we're about.

"We're extremely thankful for the assistance from the Enterprising Barnsley team and would not be where we are today without their superb support.

"Here at SCC, we manufacture high-quality compressed air equipment and sell to a network of industrial distributors within the UK. We pride ourselves on our impeccable customer service and the quality of our products.

"Although we operate across the UK and Ireland from our base in Oxspring, we feel that we're a local community business and we ensure we always suggest other local businesses when we have our partners here, be that local hotels, restaurants or suppliers."
