A FAMILY-RUN manufacturing company has unveiled its new £2m factory in Barugh Green.

Naylor Industries, a manufacturing firm for the construction industry, has opened a lintel factory at its concrete products plant in the area.

The new plan will allow the company to increase its capacity and install newer automation.

Edward Naylor, chief executive at Naylor Industries, said: “We’ve got ambitious plans and the new plant will help our business fulfil its growth potential.

“The construction industry will be central to the UK’s economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis and we are proud to be playing our part.”

Naylor Industries last month announced a £5m funding package from HSBC to support the business through pandemic trading conditions and facilitate projects for future growth.

Helen MacIntosh, Naylor’s development director, added: “Building the new plant was not without challenge, as much of the work was underway when the coronavirus pandemic broke out.

“Most recently, a team of Spanish commissioning engineers visited Yorkshire to complete equipment installation and train Naylor personnel in plant operation procedures.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the new plant and look forward to supporting our customers in the UK construction industry.”
