Robinson Manufacturing (RML) is delighted to have completed the acquisition of the fixtures and assets of Castleoak Timber Frame yesterday, after the business appointed administrators last week.
The new facilities, in Ebbw Vale, provide RML with substantial additional Timber Frame manufacturing capacity, and we plan to start production almost immediately.
We also welcome a few new colleagues to the team who were made redundant in the Castleoak liquidation. They will join us based out of our Abercarn branch and working between the two.
RML’s CEO Simon Kidney, explained the rationale behind the expansion: “The location and infrastructure in the Ebbw Vale plant is well suited to help us meet the increased demand we have been experiencing across our existing network of seven factories. Timber frame is featuring heavily in the plans of most major national and regional housebuilders moving forward, and the acquisition of additional capacity further strengthens our business for the future.”
