Celebrating over 60 years of business
The Askew family began trading office furniture in 1958 with the first shop based off St Marys gate in Sheffield selling second hand office furniture.
The company name L&TA Group is derived from father and son names Leonard and Terry Askew.
The business has seen many changes in the industry over the years and has adjusted to meet the requirements of these.
A giant leap from a Metal Desk? , Yes in the 60s a lot of office desks were all made of metal including the desktop. To the type of furniture, we sell today.
In the late 60s, we began selling new office furniture alongside second-hand offering part exchange deals which meant we could accommodate most customer budgets.
Taking in part exchange and moving on to other business we now know is classed as recycling and diverting from landfill, a huge positive in today’s world the family has been doing this for 50 years.
Over the years the family business has battled through many recessions and one way or another have managed to trade our way through them, a learning curve that gave us the experience we have today.
Moving forward to today’s market place we have gone from selling a couple of desks and chairs to planning and supplying office fit-outs for up to 800 staff at any one time.
These fit out`s include such items as electric adjustable desk`s gas lift meeting tables with power modules, Telephone boxes, private booths, and designer seating pods and chairs to name a few.
On these projects, we work closely with our suppliers who like us have been trading for over 50 years and between us offer real-life experience to our customers and help them avoid pitfalls that can and do occur on large office fit-outs.
As a company we understand the marketplace moves with the times and to future-proof the company we have launched a new and easy-to-use online purchasing website.
