James Jones & Sons has recently completed development of a new extended stock yard to the rear of its existing premises. The Forres site is already the UK’s largest manufacturing facility for engineered I-joists used in construction.
The extended stock yard allows the business to supply JJI joists and associated products within industry best delivery timescales of 7 – 10 days. The new yard will ensure customers will not run out of standard JJI products.
Speaking about the new extension, Bill Miller, Senior Sales Manager of James Jones and Sons’ Timber Systems Division commented:
“We believe our investment in the new facility comes at a vital time and will enable us to support the UK’s construction industry and many of our loyal customers to overcome the challenges caused by stock shortages over the last eighteen months. Security of supply is vital and we now have the capacity to store the equivalent of 10,000 plots in JJI-Joists. This takes the pressure off our distributors having to overstock, saving them time and money."
