Tool firm looks ahead to move

Have your say

A TOOL firm is moving after more than a century to make way for a new community football coaching centre to be run by Sheffield Wednesday.

Presto International has been on Penistone Road, Hillsborough, for 140 years.

However, in early April it will move to a purpose-built 25,000 sq feet unit six miles north, on the Thorncliffe Industrial Estate, Chapeltown.

A company spokesman said: “We are looking forward to this move, although, after so long on Penistone Road, there will be some regrets.

“We have a great new distribution facility and this will allow us to continue to grow.”

The Presto name has been visible on Penistone Road for more than 100 years, having been registered in 1907.
