In August 2014, Capital Reinforcing commenced work on our new £3.5m pound Rebar Production facility at a former derelict Unicema Plant in Bromborough
which had lay to waste for some years. We had purchased the site from a developer who had a master plan for the entire site to mix a new housing
development with a new business park which is in keeping with the local councils plan to integrate business and social housing within the area.
The new site was of strategic interest to the business as it was only 20 metres away from Mersey Wharf Port and within a few miles of Peel Ports in
Liverpool which allowed us to access rebar stocks with minimal transport costs.
We had been heavily involved in the design of the building to ensure that we have maximum operational efficiencies to match the investment in new modernised
production machinery which will ultimately ensure we increase our production strength and cut lead times for our customers.
The management team at Capital Reinforcing managed the project from start to finish, ensuring that planning was achieved right through to bringing
in sub-contractors for all the relevant specialised areas to complete the facility.
Some twelve months after starting the project we have one of the most modernised rebar production facilities in the UK, capable of producing well over
4000 tonnes of processed rebar per month.
