Our History – A story of growth
The company has grown steadily, expanding from its beginnings as a local electrical services provider into its present role as a fully-fledged building services management organisation.
Mike and Sue Sherwood founded the company in 1970 with an office in Torquay, South Devon. Mike’s son, Kevin, who is now our Managing Director, joined the firm in 1991 following a career as an approved electrician working throughout the South of England.
By 1995 we were working successfully with a range of councils and schools in the South West region. With close partnerships and a strong team leading towards steady growth, this saw a strong start to the millennium for Sherwoods.
Kevin’s wife, Jo, joined the firm in 2003 and she is now our Financial Director.
In 2008 we welcomed Phil Hesketh formally of Haden/Balfour Beatty to assist with further developing the already successful planned maintenance area of the business.
We deliver on our promises.
Sherwoods is committed to providing services of the highest possible standards. Our ISO 9001:2015 accreditation confirms our commitment to ensuring that quality is maintained.
Reliability is key, and we always aim to provide attendance and satisfactory completion on time.
A reliable supply chain has been developed over nearly 40 years to ensure high-quality materials and services are provided on time.
Sherwoods live and breathe our values to our work and community.
