Work has started on a 75,000 sq ft distribution centre for Trade Mouldings which will treble the space available to the company which makes kitchen and bedroom unit doors and MDF wrapped mouldings.
The D&B building is on a six acre site at Kingsway Business Park in Rochdale.
Trade Mouldings director Damien Connolly said: “We have been based in the area for 15 years and wanted to remain close to our existing site as we have many key staff in the area who have been with us from the start.”
The significant increase in capacity means the business can be more efficient, with an expanded stock range, a larger showroom and trade counter and a more complete service for customers, all under one roof. The company expects to occupy the unit in Autumn 2019.
Kingsway Business Park is being developed by a joint venture partnership between Wilson Bowden, Homes England, Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale Development Agency.
