New Truss Press in Wales & West

The past week has been an exciting period for production at our Wales & West factory in Abercarn. The completion of a new Truss Press has been undertaken by our dedicated maintenance team, with assistance from our Managing Director Mark Smy.

The set up uses the original table design which our Founder Tim Robinson innovated, partnered with the latest A V Birch 35t truss press, a combination that has been effective in our production department for decades. We are always looking to upgrade our production equipment to improve efficiency, so the press that formerly took this space will be refurbished shortly.

You can see the development from Day 1 to completion today below:

The introduction of new manufacturing tools is allowing us to increase our capacity and utilise the space available at the Wales & West site – thus being able to better serve our customers.

This has come in addition to welcoming our new branch manager for Wales & West Paul Holloway, who will be assisting with the further growth for the factory. Increasing our output by up to 40%, this new press will make a startling difference to the capabilities in Wales & West and our production staff are looking forward to the change in operations.
