Our Timber Systems Division in Forres has successfully purchased additional land adjacent to the current site.
In March, the deal was concluded to purchase 4.5 acres of extra land, which will increase the area of the site to 10.7 acres. This is great news for Forres, as steady growth over the past number of years has meant that workable space has been extremely tight. The intention in the short term is to use all of this extra space for product storage, but it provides great opportunities in the future for additional expansion needs.
Tenders from contractors to carry out the works on the new land resulted in a contract being awarded to GF Job. Work started on the 26 week project in July with completion by January 2022.
