In the last three years the company has built its own factory in Durham and employs 20 people from the local area to make roof trusses for prestige clients. And the beginning of this year saw investment in a new joist machine which marked the expansion into manufacturing and marketing Ecojoist to accompany the existing successful roof truss market.
Steve Harris, Director at Fencehouse, said: “We’ve taken our expansion one step at a time and Gang-Nail has been there supporting us as we’ve progressed from just producing trusses to Ecojoists. Everything has been created from scratch – we built the factory from the ground up after buying the land and even despite the difficulties of the past few years we’ve continued to go against the grain.”
Jason Ruddle, Gang-Nail’s Sales and Business Development Manager added: “It’s great to see manufacturers like Fencehouse thriving in these harsh economic times. To be nominated for a best manufacturer award against the likes of Nissan is a real achievement in such a short space of time and they have been staunch supporters of Gang-Nail’s products.
