Latest photos of the new factory

It’s been a while since we have updated anyone on the progress of the new build.

Unfortunately due to a camera malfunction we can’t bring you any new videos this month so we have put together a few stills to show you the development of the factory.  The good news is we have fixed the camera and it is now mounted on the inside so we can show you progress of the fit out.

July and things are really taking shape.
May - June. The main structure is in place

The carpark begins and preparation work is done for the outer cladding.

A couple of days after the video, the first of the outer cladding goes up !

April. More Steel Work.

The Roof batons, and the first floor office structures are put into position.


March. The proper building begins !

The cranes and steel arrived, and the outer frame and roof get positioned in a, largely, dry if windy, month !

Build progress in February
The earth was cleared and the Factory base was laid out ready for the cranes to arrive.
Sneak peek for March... the cranes arrived !

Bringing our East Grinstead and Hastings operations together under one roof is hugely exciting and will position us well for future success.
