Guttercrest has acquired an 11-acre site on Unicorn Road in order 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 their products increase over the last 12 months, particularly in the growing aluminium façade market.
Founder and manging director Gary Power said the move to the new 200,000 sq ft Oswestry site, was designed to house more state-of-the-art equipment, storage and to ‘future proof’ the predicted further growth of the business, which now employs nearly 100 members of staff.
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.”
“It’s a great success story, a well-managed growing business creating local jobs. The move to larger premises will allow the company to deliver its expanding order book and gives Guttercrest the capacity to support the next phase of growth.”
