Making Space for Expansion

With successive record-breaking weeks underpinning consistent growth in orders and deliveries to our major housebuilder partners our growth strategy remains crucial to RML’s agility and success. As a result, the business is developing its infrastructure across its factories to accommodate more production as well as storage space for raw materials to keep the factories moving.

In Wolverhampton, the derelict Sutherland House, part of the large site located in Wolverhampton, which was acquired by RML as part of the acquisition of the flooring arm of National Hickman in 2019, has recently been demolished in a tactical move which will improve joist and timber frame manufacturing capacity by providing valuable additional storage and yard space. 

RML has the largest joist capacity in the UK, Head of Joist Production, Jamie Wilkins, continues to over-see record production weeks, “I have very fond memories of the days working in Sutherland House with the National Hickman team, but life moves on. Over the last few months, we have seen an unprecedented demand for our products and the storage capacity we freed up by demolishing the unwanted building will help keep us ahead of demand.”

The expansion of our timber frame production facilities also requires storage space.  Timber Frame Manager, Sandeep Channa, commented “As we continue growing the order book, it’s exciting to see the site evolve to facilitate more production of our timber frame products”.
