Somerset contractor expands production facility
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.
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.”
