Paving and walling manufacturer Tobermore has opened its new state-of-the-art production facility.
The £10million factory is part of a £30million investment to fulfil ambitious growth plans and means the company can ramp up production in response to a surge in market demand for their hard landscaping products.
The opening of the 4416sq m plant has created dozens of local jobs across many departments including production, despatch sales and administration. It is Tobermore’s fourth block paving manufacturing facility and is projected to increase production capacity by over 30%.
Tobermore managing director David Henderson, said: “I am extremely proud that our new factory is now operational. This is an astonishing achievement! This new plant will give us significant increased capacity to make another one million square metres of block paving per year.”
“Amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic, where many firms are struggling, we recognise how fortunate we are to be able to undertake this level of capital investment and job creation.”
“We are already looking forward to 2021 when we will be able to take huge amounts of new business on board.”
