Is there a way to get the number from text messages sent without a number, it has the company name but does not have a number?

No, if a number is withheld there's no way without involving the police.
Register your numbers here:
http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/what/ as a protection against unsolicited sales calls.
You can always raise an objection with the firm concerned, by looking up their contact details, assuming it's a legitimate UK one.
You can forward spam texts to 7726, which is the O2 Spam reporting number.

I think the best thing to do is forward the message to O2, thanks for the info.

Register with the Telephone Preference Service anyway, as firms are breaking the law if they call after that.

Just to point out, that TPS does not affect texts as it is illegal to send unsolicited marketing SMS. If you receive one then report them to the Information Commissioner or forward the text to O2
(This is for unsolicited texts, spam premium rate messages are dealt with by phonepayplus )
