Metal roofing and cladding supplier United Roofing Products is expanding to a new manufacturing facility and offices at Uffculme, Devon, in a development that will facilitate business growth and support customer service objectives.
The 41 strong United Roofing Products team is set to move from its current Cullompton base from 18 December to two buildings totalling 40,000ft2 of manufacturing space at Hitchcocks Business Park in Uffculme, around three miles from the current site. The existing offices will remain open until 22 December and the new production facility and offices will open on 8 January 2024.
The new premises will allow the business to develop its commercial offer by increasing its range of stocked products to include insulation, insulated panels, underground drainage, modular roofing systems and a broader range of fixings and rainwater goods.
Commenting on the move, Charlie Somerton, commercial director of United Roofing Products, said: “The new unit will bring huge benefits to the business. It will enable us to improve our customers service, improve efficiency and invest in additional machinery. The move will be a paradigm shift that will facilitate growth.”
Ben Dominy, United Roofing Products’ managing director, added: “We will undertake the bulk of the move, in particular the production facility, over the Christmas break, traditionally a time of closure, to limit the impact on service levels. We are working closely with customers and suppliers to ensure that we can continue to service their requirements over this period.”
