Steelwork contractor opens new Blackburn facility
Taziker said it has invested in excess of £1M to establish a brand-new production facility in Blackburn, Lancashire, which has been designed to support a two-fold increase in fabrication capacity.
Located at Frontier Park, the new facility will be used for heavy steel fabrication in support of structural steel infrastructure projects across the UK.
The new facility has over 9,000m2 of fabrication space, with the ability for overhead cranes to lift up to 80 tonnes. A 40m-long bay will also be dedicated to the manufacture of footbridge projects.
Additionally, the site accommodates a 120m x 40m fully concreted yard space, which provides the capability to complete trial erections on site, reducing transportation and labour costs.
Jarrod Hulme, Managing Director Structural Solutions, Taziker said: “After the success Taziker has had over the past three years with regards to our engineering capabilities, it is time to further expand our services so that we can offer more to our clients.
“Having the ability to fabricate larger, heavier steelwork is imperative to our growth and success within the industry, and the new unit fits our needs perfectly.”
Steve Corcoran, Chief Executive, Taziker said: “This investment into these new premises shows our continued commitment to our engineering capability. I’m delighted that our investors are confident in our future value and are therefore continuing to provide their support in ensuring Taziker can continue to perform at a high level within the industry.”
