The PSP Group celebrates its quarter century in Shildon and Cramlington
The PSP Group, consisting of PSP Architectural and PSP Aluminium, completes residential, commercial and retail projects with support from PSP Design and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
Pressed Steel Products was first founded by Heath Hindmarch who started his career as a sheet metal worker before rising to QA, Commercial and Technical Manager.
Since then the company has grown into one of the UK’s leading cladding and rainscreen manufacturers, employing over 100 people at its factories in Shildon, County Durham and design services in Cramlington.

Heath Hindmarch, Chief Executive Officer of PSP Group, said: “Having started the company before the turn of the millennium, it is very special to see how it has grown from strength to strength over the past 25 years and is where we are today.”
“I am proud that PSP Group is still going strong despite having endured some difficult climatic conditions over the years.
“Without the employees, our company would not exist and I would like to say a big thank you to them for their hard work and dedication over the years – some employees have been with us from the beginning.”
The Company specializes in the design and manufacture of refractory panels and decorative cladding, metal structures and exterior facades for a range of residential, commercial, retail and public sector projects including hospitals, schools and universities.
Notable projects include Leeds University, the award-winning Caxton Works redevelopment project in Canning Town, the former BBC television headquarters in Wood Lane, London, the Pump Tower in the Royal Victoria Docks and the Soho Place Theatre, the first new theater in West The End of London in more than 40 years.
In addition to exterior facades, the PSP Group also specializes in the manufacture of bespoke metal products for the interior of commercial projects including shopping centers such as Victoria Gate in Leeds and Westgate Shopping Centre, residential towers and airports.
In 2014, PSP Group expanded its manufacturing capabilities with the addition of PSP Aluminum and a second 25,000 square foot facility in Shildon. This facility has enabled PSP Aluminum to specialize in the production of cladding, curtain walling, windows and doors, resulting in a range of projects across the country in collaboration with some of the world’s leading architects, contractors and partners.
The PSP Group continued to expand in 2016 with the launch of PSP Design, which enabled the company to offer a complete, full-service solution.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, significant investments were made in machinery that enabled a fully automated production line and a 4-day week was introduced seven years ago to prioritize the work-life balance of employees.
The company continues to work on some high profile projects including the new London borough of Canada Water.
