SCOTTS TIMBER ENGINEERING INVESTS IN FUTURE WITH CREATION OF JOBS
Scotts Timber Engineering (STE) was established two years ago and has gone from strength to strength. STE is now delighted to announce that it has invested in a brand new facility, initially creating 12 jobs.
STE was founded with the support of well-respected and established family firm, Scotts of Thrapston, a leading supplier of Joinery and Timber Engineering products.
Richard Evans, managing director of STE, says the popularity of timber in construction has led to a significant increase in output in the past 12 to 18 months and the rapid growth of the business. The new manufacturing facility will ensure the company can continue to prosper in the years to come.
"At STE we specialise in taking the benefits of environmentally friendly timber as a construction material and exploiting its strengths to achieve 21st century design solutions, such as roof trusses and metal web joists," explains Richard. "Many housebuilders and construction firms are enjoying the benefits of timber in construction and since day one we have been busy with orders. This has meant that we are on track with our expansion plans resulting in the creation of a brand new facility in Redditch."
The new premises will be based at Washford Industrial Estate on Heming Road and will see the integration of specialist timber manufacturing machinery such as table presses and computer driven truss systems.
Ten manufacturing jobs have been created together with an additional designer and trainee designer to cater for the company's growth. Richard adds: "This site of the new facility is over two acres in size with the factory covering 15,000 square feet, meaning the company can continue to grow as our order book grows and capacity can be quickly stepped up as the need arises. Machinery and equipment will be installed throughout December with the factory up and running by January 2015."
