Manufacturer set to open new 10,000 sq ft headquarters

Vuba Building Products, which manufactures resin bound and resin bonded products, is unveiling a brand new 10,000 sq ft facility in Beverley on 8 February.

The new headquarters features a training centre to accommodate the firm’s training courses, and a resin bound showroom displaying 60 of its original products.

The expansion follows Vuba’s busiest year to date as it is expected to achieve a £3m turnover in 2019.

Vuba specialises in resin bound flooring, which is an alternative to tiles and concrete mainly used for gardens, features and driveways.

The firm has also developed its own original blends which are exported worldwide, and all 60 ranges are available to view in the new on-site showroom.

Sean Scott, managing director of Vuba, said: “Starting a business in the recession during 2009 was tough but I recognised that there was a clear gap in the market, which presented a real opportunity if we stuck with it and remained true to our values of exceptional product quality and client care.

“It has always been a big ambition to operate from a large factory with the capability to manufacture products, host a showroom and allow us to invest in and develop our product range.”

The new facility will be officially opened by professional boxer, Tommy Coyle, who recently collaborated with the company to offer ten young and unemployed individuals fully-paid sponsorships to attend Vuba’s training courses.

Coyle said: “On a recent trip away with Sean we talked a lot about the importance of seizing opportunities. Sean was really passionate about taking the first steps to making his business available for the public as well as contractors, so I knew he would make it happen.

“It’s so great to see the new factory and to celebrate the fact that he has now taken this important opportunity for the business. Inspired by this, I’m really looking forward to coming down for the opening to share some of my thoughts on taking opportunities in life.”

The official opening will take place at Vuba’s new headquarters on Grovehill Industrial Estate, off Annie Reed Road in Beverley.
