We think that every milestone deserves a celebration, so when it comes to reaching 40 years in business, it was definitely a cause for a party! Studley Engineering recently marked this incredible achievement with a day of fun, laughter, and plenty of memories. On Sunday 27th August, we brought together employees and their wonderful families for a day filled with fun and appreciation.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
Before we dive into the festivities, let’s take a moment to reflect on the journey that brought us here.
Studley Engineering was created by partners Martin Hyland and Tony Brierton back in 1983. The duo were good friends and working for the same company at the time. After both being made redundant, they decided to start their own mechanical engineering business together which has gone on to flourish for four decades. Named Studley Engineering after the road where Tony lived in Wallasey, the business started at a 5,000 sqft old foundry workshop on Paisley Street, close to Liverpool’s Docks, with just five members of staff; a much smaller team than the one that operates the company today.
Still in the hands of the Hyland and Brierton families today, over the years we’ve grown, evolved, and learned, all while maintaining the values that have been at the core of our business since day one. It’s a journey we’re incredibly proud of, and it was an honour to share it with everyone at our Family Fun Day.
Back to the Celebration!
The Family Fun Day took place at Aigburth Cricket Club in Liverpool on Sunday 27th August 2023. A perfect setting for the events of the day. Designed to cater to all ages, we organised an array of entertainment to make sure everyone had a memorable experience.
With a visit from Mickey and Minnie Mouse and an acrobatic Spiderman, party games, face painting, glitter tattoos, balloon animals, ball pit, hook a duck, lawn games, popcorn and candy floss machines and an all you can eat sweet cart to name a few, the children were certainly kept entertained for the whole day!
We opted for an up-close magician, singer, and DJ to entertain the adults, along with a personalised cocktail menu, Studley bar, gourmet food selection, desserts and an engineering inspired cake – everything went down a treat!
As the day ended, we couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of pride and gratitude. Celebrating 40 years is no small feat, and it was an absolute pleasure to share this milestone with our teams and their families. Whilst our business is defined by what we do, it’s ultimately our people who define our success. Here’s to the next 40 years!
Watch some highlights of the day below!
