Russell Roof Tiles prepares for a memorable year

RRTRussell Roof Tiles is preparing for what it says will be a memorable 2015 which will see the company celebrate anniversaries for its two manufacturing plants and launch a major investment programme.

The company manufactures its range of concrete roof tiles and fittings at its Lochmaben and Burton on Trent facilities, both of which will celebrate 50th and 25th anniversaries respectively in 2015.

It is also set to launch a œ2 million investment programme in Burton on Trent to increase capacity after already investing œ250,000 in upgrading and improving the Lochmaben site.

Andrew Hayward, managing director at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “2015 is a huge milestone for our business and is a testimony to the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of our 160 staff across both sites and our loyal customers that we are still successfully manufacturing today. There have been two major global recessions that have had a massive impact on the UK but we are still here and going strong as an independent business.”

To mark the factory anniversaries, Russell Roof Tiles is planning a programme of activities to celebrate the milestone for both staff and customers.
