Somerset contractor expands production facility

Posted on by in News

Taunton Fabrications said in order to meet an increasing demand for its products and services, it is building an additional 700m² steel-framed factory space at the firm’s Galmington premises in Somerset.

The new building will primarily house the company’s finishing and offsite pre-build activities, but will also be used as an overflow facility for welding and fabrication.

Requiring around 30t of structural steelwork, the entire project, including design, civils, manufacture, erection and fit-out is being managed completely in-house.

The building will include two 5t-capacity overhead cranes, a new paint spraying system, roof-mounted solar panels and electric charging points.

Taunton Fabrications Managing Director Jason Rigby said: “The new facility will greatly increase our efficiencies, and our plan is to have our new pre-build assembly and despatch area operational by September – ready to begin painting and assembling balconies and staircases for two large contracts we have in Bristol and Cardiff.”
