The Guttercrest Group has acquired an 11-acre site, previously home to Richard Burbidge, tripling its manufacturing space to accommodate a rapidly expanding workforce and customer demand.
The Guttercrest Group – who design and manufacture aluminium rainwater goods, façades, fascias, soffits, wall coping, column casings and window pods – has seen demand for its products increase over the last 12 months, in particular the growing aluminium façade market.
Founder and managing director of the company, Gary Power, said the move to the new 200,000 ft2 Oswestry site, was designed to house more state-of-the-art equipment and storage and to ‘future proof’ the predicted further growth of the business.
Gary said: “The investment in the new premises is vital in allowing us to make a strong move forward – ensuring we are competitive and that we can scale-up manufacturing and recruit more staff.
“Further, we are in a position to expand in order to meet continued growth in demand from current and new customers across the UK.
