Steeped in history

Rotherham has long been a major business centre in South Yorkshire, and not just because it became an Enterprise Zone way back in 1983, which saw new companies and investment into the local economy. Rotherham can trace its roots back to the early middle ages and saw the Romans exploit the area for its rich deposits of iron ore. Coal, however, was responsible for the development of the area during the industrial revolution and the the development of the River Don as a navigation channel.

Like neighbouring Sheffield, Rotherham became known for iron and steel production. Also, glass production began back in 1751, with manufacturers exporting glass products for industry around the world.

Rotherham has a thriving business community composed of not just local businesses but some major brands too, such as Rolls-Royce and McLaren. The town is also home a variety of precision engineering businesses. So it’s perhaps not surprising that the Foys Office in Rotherham has a strong commercial property services team.
