Wernick Buildings is set to double production output after opening a new factory at Kenfig Industrial Estate last week.
Wernick has been producing modular and portable buildings in South Wales since 1989, when the company purchased a factory at Neath Abbey from Taylor Woodrow. When the site at Kenfig was purchased it had been derelict for six years.
The £3m factory development cost also included the first building to be manufactured at Kenfig – a new 630m2 office building placed at the front of the factory, which took only eight weeks to manufacture and install.
Wernick says that the new factory is already producing more than was possible at Neath, and once the third line becomes fully operational it will be able to produce nearly twice as much.
Chairman David Wernick said that the aim was to double turnover within the next three years.
First minister of Wales Carwyn Jones performed the ceremonial opening of the factory.
