Roofing firm spends £2m on new manufacturing facility

Metal roofing fabricator Corrivo has invested more than £2m into a new 10,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, including a range of new machinery.

Based in Burton, Corrivo has opened another manufacturing facility in addition to its existing factory, which will expand its capacity for flashings, gutters and other metal fabrications.

Paul Foster, managing director, said: “After experiencing consistent growth for the last few years, we wanted to increase the output of our production to keep up with demand. This investment in a new factory will allow us to continue delivering our exceptional service levels to customers, while increasing the level of products we can offer.

“The new 10,000 sq ft facility will help us manufacture even more products without taking away our core business principles of getting products to customers quickly.”

Having already moved into the new premises, Corrivo has already taken delivery of a range of new machinery, including an Amada punch machine.

Foster added: “We’re a fast-moving company, and we’ve already invested in a range of new machinery for the new location, some of which has already arrived. We don’t want to waste a minute and have already started manufacturing in the new premises.

“Our new punch machine will also allow us to expand the range of products we can offer. Working to any CAD design, we can now manufacture a wide range of perforated and punched fabrications for a range of projects.”
