A new timber frame business has been opened in Nantyglo, Blaenau Gwent, where Taylor Lane (Wales) Ltd plans to produce timber frames for new build developments across the region.
With over 30,000 sq. ft of manufacturing facilities, the company will provide timber frame solutions for contractors, developers and self-builders, and offer complementary products and services including design, estimating and project management.
The factory and offices were officially opened by former Wales International and British Lion, Brynmor Williams (pictured).
“We saw an opportunity to establish a new business and Wales made economic sense, as a location and employment base,” commented Barrie Lane, Managing Director of Taylor Lane (Wales). “We have already received incredible support and encouragement from the Council and local business leaders. We are looking forward to extending the facility and services of Taylor Lane (Wales), as the Welsh Government pledges funds to build 20,000 affordable homes over the next four years.”
Councillor David Davies, Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development said: “We are delighted that Taylor Lane have chosen Nantyglo to establish a new timber frame business. This will provide an added boost to the building industry in our area, especially as the Welsh Government is committed to building affordable homes throughout Blaenau Gwent. Additionally, timber frame house construction offers many benefits, they are quicker than traditional buildings to construct and provide many environmental advantages.”
