29 September 2016

A roof truss supplier has marked the fruits of a £1.5 million investment with the official opening of its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

Crendon Timber Engineering’s new site in East Harling, Norfolk, was officially opened by local MP – and secretary of state for justice – Elizabeth Truss.

The 1,700m2 factory at the company’s site, which manufactures trussed rafters and Posi-Joists, is the latest landmark for the company as it towards its 50th anniversary next year.

The East Harling plant is one of six production facilities in the UK. The new East Harling depot will offer a full design and manufacture service for roof trusses and Posi-Joists along with a distribution hub for the south-east of England including East Anglia, Kent and Surrey.

Managing director Alex McLeod said: “In an industry where the reliable supply of quality materials to site is a key consideration for buyers, the opening of our new world-class manufacturing facility in East Harling is just another example of the investment we feel our customers deserve.”

He invited regional housebuilders and local building contractors to the plant to see “21st Century manufacturing in action”.
