Stonehaven-based Deeside Timberframe is set to build on last year’s record financial performance with continued growth in Central Scotland and North England.
The timber systems manufacturer, part of Aberdeenshire’s Bancon Group, is reaping the rewards of its investment in additional resources in Central Scotland and North-west of England with over 60 per cent of its business now out with the North-east of Scotland.
Deeside Timberframe, which recorded sales of £23 million during 2015, has secured sales of £16m, so far, for the year to 2017. These contracts are with a number of main contractors and private developers covering the affordable housing, private housing and commercial sectors. This latter sector which includes schools, care homes and hotels is a specialised area which Deeside has successfully operated in for over 10 years and is aiming to expand further.
John Wright, Deeside Timberframe’s managing director, said: “We are expecting to see another strong year of sales for our innovative timber frame solutions in both the house builder and construction sectors. Adding to our business development resources is part of our planned growth strategy and further underlines our commitment to deliver quality, reliability and value for money in this expanding industry.
“Despite tough market conditions here in the North-east, trading in the region remains strong with a healthy order book and an extremely high level of enquiries. Already accredited as one of the most economic, efficient and environmentally friendly methods of construction timber frame systems are being increasingly used in the construction of homes, supermarkets and hotels.”
The company employs 70 people from its operations in Stonehaven and Stirling.
