To meet growing demand from UK and international customers, Gripsure has expanded its production space.
A new production facility has been created that is one-and-a-half times the size of Gripsure's previous space at its premises at Rockhill Business Park in Bugle. Expanding into premises next door and redesigning the space has enabled the business to improve productivity and efficiency.
The expansion has also created more office space to accommodate the growing team and additional storage. This means more timber decking boards can be held in stock and orders can be responded to more quickly.
The expansion has been completed following a 25 per cent turnover increase over the last 12 months. This year Gripsure has doubled its production team and secured a number of major national contracts.
Gripsure Managing Director Mike Nicholson said: “We are increasingly handling bigger orders for large customers so expanding our production space was essential. Growing and redesigning our space will help ensure we are as productive as possible and can continue to deliver outstanding customer service.
“This has been a really excellent year for Gripsure. As well as working with some of the UK’s leading household names such as Jewson, Homebase and Travis Perkins, we are growing our exports and are now supplying some of Europe’s leading builders and timber merchants.”
