New Welsh Roof Truss Factory One Month On

One month on, Robinson Manufacturing’s new Welsh roof truss factory has taken off above and beyond all our expectations.

Covering Wales and the South West, our new factory site in Abercarn, just outside Newport in South Wales. Covering more than 3 acres, the site has added to our three existing factories in Northamptonshire and Essex to create a national presence as we respond to demand via our four factories across the country, including the South West.

Since the first truss was manufactured at the new plant just one month ago, our clients in the national housebuilding market have started to place orders from their southern and South Western regions as we can now service these areas very cost effectively.

“We are delighted with how quickly our new factory is taking off, and with the dedication of our team down in Abercarn,” commented Mark Smy, Managing Director of Robinson Manufacturing Ltd. “It’s great to see how the trusted partnerships we have developed with national house builders over the decades have so quickly translated into a successful expansion of our business. We are also very happy to see the response to our new factory from local house builders across South Wales and the South West”.

Local development is a key plank of RML’s development strategy, and the expansion into Wales has created new skilled jobs for the local community as we have prepared the new site for its opening in March 2017. We also have advanced plans to get actively involved in supporting a range of community-based activities, as we do around our existing factories and are using local suppliers wherever we can.
