Our new development at Hangingshaw, three miles north of our Lockerbie site, is well into the final stages of construction with the building almost complete and machinery and equipment being installed, including the treatment tank and MHS line.
The building itself is over 22,000m2 and will provide secondary processing facilities that will dramatically increase our ability to meet the needs of the domestic fencing market. Demand for incised fence posts, which were pioneered in the UK by James Jones & Sons, consistently outstrip supply and by investing around £16.5 million in the Hangingshaw facility we will be able to satisfy the needs of our customers during the peak fencing season.
Inside the main building construction of the office accommodation is underway using C16 treated carcassing from the Lockerbie mill and, in the ceiling, JJI-Joists manufactured at our Forres site.
