Robinson Manufacturing In Major Joist Capacity Expansion

In a major expansion of I-Beam manufacturing capacity, we are delighted to confirm that Robinson Manufacturing Ltd (RML) has agreed terms on a 25,000sq ft manufacturing unit in Willenhall, between Walsall and Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

RML will occupy the site from the beginning and January and plans are already in place for it to be up and running quickly, giving us the capacity to manufacture an additional 400 floor sets each week within just a few weeks.

This major expansion, our sixth factory across the UK, is part of our commitment to support a variety of regional and national housebuilders who have requested additional supply in this area.

“This investment is in response to specific direct feedback that house builders need support in this area due to struggles accessing the product during 2018,” explained Robinson Manufacturing COO Simon Kidney. “This level of capacity combined with our reputation for service, reliability and transparency, should restore housebuilder confidence in revitalised joist supply in this market.”

The new I-Beam factory comes with 4,000 sq ft of office space, which RML will use to concentrate our floor design into a new centre of excellence, mirroring our highly effective truss design structure in Wellingborough. The successful Robinson Manufacturing customer service model, which has underpinned the company’s significant growth in recent years, will also be applied to housebuilders choosing RML for joist supply.

The reputation of Robinson Manufacturing is built upon the personal commitment of our outstanding people, many of whom have grown with the company since its beginnings as a family business. As we expand further, we continue to invest in local communities allowing us to attract the finest talent in the areas we serve across the country.

This dedication to customer satisfaction, open communication and quality is unrivalled and enables us to supply competitively at every level in the housebuilding sector. Robinson Manufacturing continues to build partnerships with housebuilders from the smallest local operation to the best-known household names through national contracts.
